The life of black history
Should be recognized
By all black people
Who only observe it in February,

If it is looked on with a serious mind
You would celebrate it every day
It would help the unstable minds
Of black people
Who do not learn, and have no will to learn,
It would bring harmony among us.

We must leave violence out,
Respect our families, friends,
And all other human beings
Remember in your thought,
That the idea can work
If you put an effort toward
The main purpose

Also remember your parents
Who gave you love, and respect
The foundation is set for you
To give the same respect
For your wife and kids,
By doing these deeds
You can appreciate black history
