Anthony Bila - Black History March Vol I

J'ai aimé cette série de photos Black History March par Anthony Bila en collaboration avec le collectif Love is African, une ode à l'Histoire Noire.

Lest we forget, lest we ever forget
Blood bleeds from our own hands,
Lest we live with regrets, live bitter regret
Blood on the leaves, seeps into the land
Seeds fed on the sweat of black brows
Blood bled from fallen angels on ominous clouds
Graves whitewashed they forgot
But black history marched on
Stained and ingrained in mind from hand
So much we overcame, so few understand
Lynched.
Burned.
Murdered.
Buried and forgotten in shallow graves
Chained and enslaved
A little change makes it all stay the same
New chains, economic new slaves
Graves whitewashed they forgot
But black history kept marching on
Sophisticated slavery & invisible shackles
The war wages on, battle after battle
How will you experience emancipation
When the mansion you lust for,
was built on the damned plantation
Graves whitewashed they forgot
But black history keeps marching on.

Lieu: Alexandra en Afrique du Sud.
