“I begin to wonder if white is the color of things to be worshipped in this world. If it's the only color to be worshipped in this world.”
Echo Brown, Black Girl Unlimited

“What dreams have they forced you to defer?
Did you want to be a pilot and fly planes?
Did they say you wouldn't make it in the Ivy League?
Did you want to be a poet and write your poems in the stars like the ones that came before?

Maybe the darkness inside stole your dreams?
Left you broken and buried
In a womb of despair
Did you have the rise up out of the dirt, too,
Learn to cultivate the light again, too?

Did you ever think you would watch your parents crawling around on the floor, chasing the white ghost?
Did you ever think would be next?

What kind of dreams you got festering, burning inside you?
How many nights you had to sit on the ceiling,
Waiting for dem dreams?
Chasing dem dreams
Hoping they wouldn't steal dem dreams?
Tell me 'bout dem dreams
Tell me what dey was

What dreams have they forced you to defer?
And what do you plan to do about it?”
Echo Brown, Black Girl Unlimited

“My brothers are no longer children, and they're already trapped in a school system that is failing them, just like the mayor says.”
Echo Brown, Black Girl Unlimited
