Black Is Beautiful - Poem by Preston Mwiinga

Black is beautiful and I am proud to be born black. It has the chocklet. Chocklate is sweet no wonder everyone likes it, so is my skin color. Proud to be born black.
Black is not cursed, God is God of all of us, he loves the black skin just like he loves the one skin, because of this I will not be intimidated about my skin color because black is beautiful.
Black is beautiful because it is a symbol of strength seen from the hardworking miners at chambeshi mines, or as strong as an Africa woman carrying a calabash on her head. Being black is my pride and this I will not hide as I ride on the fertile land of the blacks, black is beautiful.

Black is beautiful being black I possess a symbol of power authority, and the confidence that I can do all things. I do not have to bleach to look like while for I may end up looking like a Zebra, I do not have to change my lips to red, as might look like an animal that has dipped its mouth in cold blood. Black is beautiful.
Black is beautiful, as it is a symbol of honor and modesty, black is beautiful as it is a symbol hospitality, black is beautiful it is a symbol of a beautiful continent, “Africa“, and I am proud to be born black.
