The Afro Theory

{ The Afro Theory as written by Arnold Adrian }

They called us cursed descendants of Noah
But I swear we are more than a clan.
We the spirit of defiance that makes a frog take to flight whenever it hops.
We are the gods of the  land.

They called us slaves,
But I swear we are more than subjects of their whips.
We are the light coming out of the caves.
We are Christ betrayed by a kiss.

They called us Negroids
But I swear we are more than a race
We asteroids,
Precious stones sent from heaven above.
So when you look in the mirror
Know that Melanin is not an error

{ The Afro Theory as written by David Quaye}

In the rhythms of reggae
In the beats of hip hop
In the vibrations of soul
I find a history

In the blackness of Elmina
In the black diaspora
In the black poem of Baraka
I find a journey

Spearheaded by Garvey
Foretold by Moses
Blessed by Selassie
The Afro Theory

The Black Story
Written on the skin anointed with Melanin
Hidden in the locks of woollen hair
Black is not the absence of color
But the presence of everything
The pigment, the Afro – the breath of life
Whose absence is rather sin
