A Liberating Black People’s Prayer for Justice & Peace | Frances Cress Welsing, Howard University College of Medicine ’62


Thou who are Blacker                                                                                                                                                                     Than a trillion midnights;
Whose eyes shine brighter
Than a billion suns.

Thou whose hair doth
Coil tighter than a
Million springs, radiating
All energies throughout
The universe.

We beseech Thee, One
And Only One
To give us total strength
to carry out Thy will for the universe!
To establish justice on 
planet Earth and live in peace.
