Sweet as sugarcane,
skin black like soil, and
eyes shining as a coin.
I’m glowing as the morning sunshine
and slow as the evening sunset.

Healthy as a lemon tree,
strong as a stallion and nothing
can prove me wrong.

I’m black and proud
I can read what’s written!
Speak what’s spoken!
I can do whatever can be done!

I’m black and proud
I’m intelligent and also
Talented like you.
I’m stable like you and
Stable more than you.

It’s true I’m stronger than you
I’m black and Proud
I cry when I’m sad,
shout when I’m mad,
Laugh when happy…
I’m black and proud
