ROOTS N CULTURE [BLACK HISTORY] - SPOKEN WORD | POETRY [PART 3]

Make we chant nyabinghi whilst the drums are beating
Rise up the spirit of the warrior african queen
We will not bow to the colonists no time of day
Queen Nanny of the maroons was rebellious same way

Standing up proud like the ashanti of Ghana
Seeing Beyoncé invoke the spirit of Yemoja
Performing a dance ritual all over
As a tribute to Oshun and the Orishas
Get information or in formation
Our culture influences many nations
Like our ancestors whose spirits we invoke
Staying spiritually connected when we dance tambu
Take you right back to ancient Africa
To a time and place before it was colonised
When we ruled the world my queens and kings
Remember the time Michael Jackson did sing
We created music from bodily percussion
The heart set the beat the rhythm from the foot bottom
How deep this story goes resonates with the soul
Our roots, culture and black history

@thisisbooklove_ so impressed and excited to see Ghanaian warrior #yaaasantewaa in Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls. @noa.snir created beautiful illustrations #diversity #ghana #

How many children's books mention this great Queen Yaa?

Previous posts saw big chats about whether Queen Elizabeth the First should be included in the book?

Queen Elizabeth the First, Yaa in the same book? That's pretty trailblazing?

Yaa ruled the Asante Kingdom in Ghana fighting for her people. Queen Elizabeth 1st ruled the British Empire, the same Empire that wanted to exploit and pillage West Africa where Yaa ruled.
BUT here they are in same book, just pages apart, BOTH BEING CELEBRATED! #WORLDHISTORY #Nannyofthemaroons also in book and Queen Elizabeth 1st again just a few pages apart... Just eighty years between Queen Elizabeth's reign and #Nanny who freed the enslaved Africans in Jamaica, the same enslaved who the Queen's empire was built on. Two such women, pages apart in this book, fighting for such different things in the 1600s.

Imagine these characters came to life and all leapt of the pages at night while we sleep? What would they say to each other? Ouch
This book really got us all talking history time lines!

This book definitely evokes discussion... Www.thisisbooklove.com
