Black Butterfly – Spread Your Wings and Fly!
This is snippet of the chorus and first verse written by Ann Nesby…
“Black Butterfly, you can do most anything your heart desires.
Freedom comes from understanding who you are.
It’s time to reclaim your place amongst the stars.
Spread your wings and fly.
Awaken a genius that’s been asleep too long.
A people with a beauty rich and strong.
A heritage that rates second to none.
Original, equality does not change them to fit in.
Now that you are on top keep rising.
Experience new life, be born again. “
The song “Black Butterfly” by Sounds of Blackness can be found on the long play release “Africa to America: The Journey of the Drum”.
