Akua Naru

"(Black &) Blues People"

[Chorus: Akua Naru]
Black people unite
Black people unite
Black people unite
Black people unite

[Verse 1: Akua Naru]
Uh, uh
Fathom a people, fracture rattle in bones of West Africa
Trapped in the burden that's chained to the diaspora
Middle passenger, captured and framed and named hazardous
Tackled by catastrophe, tragedy paved a path for us
Lost on the shores, who but us could draw a map for us?
Chorus when that caged bird sing another sad story
Pastor told me Lord see our plight, won’t forsake us
Though his face favors the same snakes that enslaved us
Tobacco in Mississippi, sugar cane in Jamaica
A European crave for [?] acres
An array of shots fired at a Audubon stage
Malcolm falls to his death before a crowd of black faces
As his wife wept, life crept from this plane, joined the angels
Four little girls left, a set of twins gestatin', behold
A shining prince eulogized by Ossie Davis
Huh, take it

[Chorus: Akua Naru]
Black people unite
Black people unite
Black people unite
Black people unite
