Black Resistance ©️Dawn Minott |a Gwawdodyn Byr for Black History Month

Black History Month 2023 theme: “Black Resistance”

Every stroke of pen takes flight

Every piece of poem and prose write

Every act of resistance might

Every riot, march, sit-in fight

Each is another force—Black resistance

Stay the course till freedom for all is right
