Black History Month: What we want to see, is African liberty . . . Ziggy Marley

Ziggy Marley
Black My Story

ziggy marley 1Black my story, black my story
Not his-tory, black my story
Black my story, black my story
Not his-tory, black my story

From education to civilization
From astrology straight to biology

Black my story, black my story
Not his-tory, black my story
African glory, African glory
What we want to see, is African liberty

From Marakeshi to Egypt, Rio-De-Oro
From Cape Town to Addis-Ababa and Congo

African glory, african glory
What we want to see
African liberty, give it to me

Oh, black my story, black my story
No not his-tory, black my story
African glory, African glory
What we got to see, must be Africa’s liberty

From Mozambique to Libya
Oh land of the Uganda
From Senegal to Somalia
Oh the land of good Ghana

African glory, African glory
What we want to see is African liberty
Black my story, black my story
Black my story, not his-tory

A black my story, I and I story
Black my story, not his-tory
Black my story, black my story
Not his-tory, an African glory

  1. Giv thanks Russel, Blazin Fyah!!

    Yes, a new history created by black people reversing the experiences of the past 400 years and redeeming the glory befitting of the black nation. As Bob said (among many more inspirations):

    Africa unite! Get up, stan up and defend truths & rights for Black Man Redemption cause Yu cant run away from yourself. Remember the Stone that the builder refused.

    One love.
