African Family Reunion

by Linda Hayes

African family reunion
how interesting it would be
to follow Alex Haley
and retrace our family tree;

Back to our native homeland
Uganda, Kenya or Chad
to learn how African life was
before the good things went bad;

It's sad we can only retrace
to a time when our people were slaves
ancient ancestral traditions
carried with them to their graves;

We know little of our heritage
they refuse to teach it in school
celebrating ethnic diversity
is something we should all want to do;

An in depth research of black history
would offer an amazing surprise
we've contributed much to world progress
the truth would open your eyes.
