The voices that pierce through generations of struggle

Bessie Smith

The drum, the beat, the cool, the call back...
Voices that surpass the trauma of oppression, poverty
Reach into the ancestral pulse,
 Establishing the greatest of American Arts;
Stories echo through generations of Blackness;
Withstanding brutality to emerge with vitality,
Victorious in the annuals of world culture, always.
