The Last Whisper

I believe that our ancestors whispered an unearthly chant to summon strength that allowed our people to endure the long procession to castles built for our capture and transport, the despicable conditions of the castles, where we were held for months and sometimes years in preparation for the disgraceful conditions of our seizure to foreign lands, the beginning and ending of our auction, separation of culture, hangings, beatings, rape, castration,and the effects of evil torture, emancipation, Jim Crow, massacres, segregation, discrimination, civil rights, police brutality and what ever else is to come.

This piece is a reminder to keep our ears keen as we still have the ability to hear and embody the purpose of the last whisper. Just listen and your strength will be revealed, nurtured and increased. Listen and you will be changed.
