Say it loud, “I am Black and I am Proud” Quotes

You so black
You so black
When you smile, the stars come out
You so black
When you born the God come out black as night…

Black is pyramid and mathematics
Black is melanised and magic

Black is brilliant
Black is strong
Black is resilient
Black is song

Black is love

-Theresa Tha Songbird

“There is a kind of strength that is almost frightening in Black women. It’s as if a steel rod runs right through the head down to the feet.
-Maya Angelou

“I am Black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos — and the [whyte] man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am Black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.”
-Frantz Fanon

I was born in the Congo
I walked to the Fertile Crescent and built
The Sphinx
I designed a pyramid so tough that a star
That only glows every one hundred years falls
Into the center giving divine perfect light
I am bad…

I am so perfect so divine so ethereal so surreal
I cannot be comprehended except by my permission

-“Ego Tripping” by Nikki Giovanni

“…I was glad I was not one of those [Europeans] who hated; I was glad I was not one of those made sick and murderous by pride. I was glad I was not one of those whose story is in the history of the world, a record of bloodshed, raping and pillage. I was glad my mind and spirit were part of the races that …still had before them the opportunity to write a record of virtue as a memorandum to Armageddon.”
-Walter White

“To me, we are the most beautiful creatures in the whole world. Black people. And I mean that in every sense, outside and inside. And to me, we have a culture that is surpassed by no other civilization…”

The night is beautiful
So the faces of my people

The stars are beautiful
So the eyes of my people

Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.

-“My People” by Langston Hughes

“I know I am black. Beautiful with meaning.”

“I find, in being black, a thing of beauty: a joy; a strength; a secret cup of gladness.”
-Ossie Davis

“I am dripping melanin and honey. I am Black without apology.”
-Upile Chisalapic

The black skin is not a badge of shame but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.”
-Marcus Garvey

“Black! Black! Black! I am proud of being [Black]. Nor have I ever tried to beg tolerance from anyone. Superiority is not proved by color, but by the brain, by education, by willpower, by moral courage.”
-Jose Celso Barbosa
