A word of Black History Month.

marmalc
2013, and the state of Black America.”Nia”. A swahili word, and one principle of Kwanzaa, that means purpose, or building and development, this word was introduced to me via kwanzaa, under grad  study, and among teachers, and scholars. Building on knowledge, coming up under urban struggle, the grind, and transitions of black inner city adolescence, black inner city violence,  among movin’ a hussle to success, or a meeting with fate: “Nia”, purpose, or ” to build” took on a new meaning for me.  Years ago, In the sake of success and survival, i walked with a mind to  ” re build” the hood i lived in, though murder and coke took its toll.  To the present i “build” with my fam back in N.Y for a better Economic and domestic future.   In my occupation  i “Build” with grassroots affiliates to educate, and create social change, for sufferage of Urban America, and coming babies. Bet.  Build is the word, for black history month? true indeed, Because this is one people, one culture, among other races that has taken its losses, here on American soil.   History explains itself, theres so much to say, in matters of the present, theres so much more to do.  Black history month is a time of reflecting; to honor a people and culture, and their plight in the  Americas.  To me, even a  better  time for those peoples, and other ethinicities to build and move ahead in urban America.  From the early 20th century till now, statistics is hard. A percentage locked up , the other gone, the other in conflict. . Recent incidents in America, and heavy propaganda by media, changed issues of gun control.  Those aware, and rallying continue, Re build, because years before these tragedies, black and latino babies, and other were dying, and are dying in middle and lower class urban America. In the words of the late kwame ture,  Consider. –
