The Pyramids Belong To Us - Poem by Steven Taylor

The Pyramids belong to us, and so too does the Sphinx
The books they use in schools today would never have you think…
…have you think our ancestors were civilized and strong
Strong enough to rule their world, no race has ruled as long

White scholars and historians no longer can attack
Leake’s theory stating that the first man’s skin was Black
Black Africans had dynasties ten thousand years before
The first white European man knew what a wheel was for

Moses was an African, ….. Black men were Popes of Rome
And Jesus was an African, his land was once our home
So parents it is up to us to teach Black history
To our children and ourselves before we can be free
