Askari and Me

Africans in America
This poem was written by Heal the Streets Fellow Nubia in honor of Black History Month. They lock us up in cages
Behind bars. With no cards.
Our decks is empty
Still our struggles are hard. It's not fair that our opportunities are limited.
Yet the circumstances holding us back are limitless.
