BEAUTIFUL BLACKNESS

Sweet juice drips from the BLACKberry on full lips

Adding to our fullness

And it’s just so BEAUTIFUL

 

BLACK excellence on screen in 2018

Love what we’re seeing

Cause it looks so BEAUTIFUL

 

Finally getting shine at the Grammys

It was long overdue and we’re moved

Cause the music is BEAUTIFUL

 

If we don’t say it who will?

Let’s keep it real, we got a history that they don’t teach the children

And it’s BEAUTIFUL

 

Round nose, dark tone, BEAUTIFUL

Hair on fleek, all natural

Girl, that’s BEAUTIFUL

 

Me, I got locs and they’re BEAUTIFUL

Shorty got a fade

And the wave game flow so BEAUTIFUL

 

African names like Okpara, Naima, Olamide

You know what I’mma say

That’s BEAUTIFUL

 

BLACK Heritage Celebration

The embracing of BLACK achievement

Throughout generations

 

4 flowers from a little BLACK boy that’s sees a BLACK man

And thinks to himself

United we stand

 

Salute the former First Lady (Michelle Obama)

When they go low, we go high

The soul of BLACK folks, it don’t die

 

Like Maya Angelou, Still I Rise

That’s BEAUTIFUL

Her words left a legacy like she’s still alive

 

I’m BLACK and beautiful and still alive (yea)

I’m BLACK and beautiful and still alive (yea)

I’m BLACK and beautiful and still alive (yea)

BLACK is beautiful and so alive
