Black History Poem

by Turia

The Power is in the People!
Frederick and Harriet back in the day 
The Underground Railroad was their secret way 
Helping our people to overcome, 
what the slave Masters had begun 
Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, 
vicariously a Victorious defeat 
WEB Dubois, doctor and writer, too 
Co-founder of NAACP graduate of Harvard U 
Mary McLeod-Bethune maintained much knowledge, 
She founded Bethune Cookman College 
Sojourner Truth was among the first to let then know, 
put an end to slavery so my people can grow 
Lewis Latimer is remember well, 
he made the first drawings for Alexander Graham Bell 
The POWER, the REAL power is in the people, 
so if you begin to fall 
Remember your LEGACY, 
stand strong, stand tall!!
