Africa for Africans Spoken words by Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr
Marcus Mosiah Garvey – Africa for the Africans
“Say! Africa for the Africans, like America for the Americans: This the rallying cry for a nation, be it in peace or revolution.
Blacks are men, no longer cringing fools; they demand a place, not like weak tools; but among the world of nations great, they demand a free self-governing state.
Hurrah! Hurrah! Great Africa wakes; she is calling her sons, and none forsakes, but to colours of the nation run, even though assailed by enemy guns.
Cry it loud, and shout it Ion’ hurrah! Time has changed, so hail! New Africa! We are now awakened, right to see: We shall fight for dearest liberty.
Mighty kingdoms have been truly reared, on the bones of Blackmen, facts declared; history tells the awful, pungent truth, Africa awakes to her rights forsooth.
Europe cries to European, ho! Asiatics claim Asia, so Australia for Australians, and Africa for Africans.
Blackmen’s hands have now joined together, they will fight and brave all death’s weather, motherland to save and make her free, spreading joy for all to live and see.
None shall turn us back, in freedom’s name, we go marching like to men to fame, who have given laws and codes to kings, sending evil flying in crippled wings.
Blackmen shall in groups reassemble, rich and poor and the great and humble: justice shall be their rallying cry, when millions of soldiers pass us by.
Look for that day, coming, surely soon, when the sons of Ham show no coon. Could the deeds of valour do, which shall bring giants for peace to sue.
Hurrah! Hurrah! Better time are near; let us front the conflict and prepare; greet the world as soldiers, bravely true: ‘Sunder not,’ Africa shouts to you.”
