Black (African) History Month Reading List

This is by no means an exhaustive list, just a beginning.

Among all the signing and dancing that organizations that claim to represent
'black' culture are bound to put on this month it's easy to forget why Black
History Month was started in the first place. It can also be easy to get
caught up in that word 'black' and forget that this a part of the history of
humanity as a whole.

Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee

Bury my heart at wounded knee
I have no use for it anymore
It still beats, but the rhythm is off
Off, off, strange
The music of fate to which my hips gyrate
I dance with destiny
My soul left with the last treaty
Promises, promises, happy servants, offices
Ushered, moved, herded, the cattle of the blue coats
Milked of our wills, now meat for the kill
Bury my heart at
wounded knee
I left it there anyway
cover it with earth
or dirt as you may say
gut the earth for all she¹s worth
use her guts for garters
but when they are worn,
a woman scorned
will spawn a race of martyrs
death dressed as progress
the suit is a misfit
but no one will tell the emperor
(he shoots you with cannon balls)
death dressed as
murder hides in the bushes
reach down my throat
pull the rations from my stomach
with the same hand that pulls triggers if I don¹t comply
Bury my heart at wounded knee
it¹s a weight in my chest
for an open heart is a closed coffin
in the world of the fork tongue.
