Black History Month (Red, Black and Green)

Even it is Black History Month, I want to share a poem a with you. This poem is called Red, Black and Green. This work is based on the Pan-African flag. This flag was adopted in the United Negro Improvement Association or the UNIA in 1920. Each color has its own representation. Here is what I think each color represents. My poem is found below. Happy reading!

Red: the color of passion, the color of excitement, the color of love, the color of beauty, the color of courage, the color of the blood that was shed by my ancestors and what binds us together as a human race
Black: the color of power, the color of strength, the color of elegance, the color of rebellion, the color of individuality, the color of style, the color of sophistication, the color of Nubian people from the Motherland
Green: the color of hope, the color of life, the color of harmony, the color of generosity, the color of renewal, the color of tranquility, the color of peace, the color of the plentiful natural treasure of Africa

These three colors unite together in the tapestry that brings the representation of the pride of all Africans and African Americans.
