Detroit Conference of Unity and Art
(For HRB)

We went there to confer
On the possibility of
Blackness
And the inevitability of
Revolution

We talked about
Black leaders
And
Black Love

We talked about
Women
And Black men

No doubt many important
Resolutions
Were pa**ed
As we climbed Malcolm’s ladder

But the most
Valid of them
All was that
Rap chose me
