We did it

Yes we can!

malcolm3Malcolm X soutenait la fierté noire, l’autosuffisance économique et l’identité politique de la communauté afro américaine. Dans les derniers mois de sa vie, il s’éleva au rang de panafricain mondialement connu et d’avocat inconditionnel des droits des noirs américains. Il fut assassiné à New York le premier jour de la National Brotherhood Week (Semaine nationale de la fraternité).



rosa20parksOn December 1, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks refused to obey bus driver James Blake’s order that she give up her seat to make room for a white passenger. Parks’ act of defiance created the modern Civil Rights Movement and Parks became an international icon of resistance to racial segregation. She organized and collaborated with civil rights leaders, including boycott leader Martin Luther King, helping to launch him to national prominence in the civil rights movement.


aretha-franklin-mlk-132I say to you today, my friends that a dream deeply rooted in the American dream is not to be given up.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: « We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. »

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.

This is our hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!….




Inspiration de willykean (willykean got inspired)

Now I know why the caged bird is singing, no matter how strong the barriers around it are.

The caged bird is flying higher and higher, and he won’t fear the thunder storm.

The caged bird must keep going, one step after another

Because his day has come

The bird is tiny, he may seem helpless

Don’t be mistaken

Though a bird is tiny,

In spite of his being in jail, he knows how to sing

And THAT is his strengh.
