I am emancipation, the door and one path.
You are emancipation, the walls and another path.
We are emancipation, the roof and windows, a shelter.
Emancipation is not complete until we are all emancipated.
The first and important step is to scrub our minds of the colonizer ‘s lies and affirm those aspects of our culture that sustain and empower us.
The second step is respect of our people, and keeping us safe, especially women and children. Empower ourselves with knowledge.
Third step is a foundation of manhood that combines strength with wisdom.
Together we rise. We demand reparation out of respect for all the hard labor and sacrifices our ancestors made so that we are still here standing.
