Africa, Our Africa

Africa, Our Africa

Africa of Green and Black, of colors in between
Africa of people, of love and light, from within

Africa of ethnics and languages, of long told history
Africa of cultures and traditions, a rich tapestry.

Africa of strife and victory through colonial time
Africa of struggle through imperial crime

Africa of war, both tribal and civil
Africa of peace, condemning evil

Africa of hope, freedom and liberation
Africa of growth, of change and innovation

Africa of then: men, women - slaves to capture
Africa of now: men, women - reclaiming our valor!

Africa, Our Africa
