Now is the time to make your voice and speech heard. This is Black History Month and this is my story. I am African American and I wrote this poem since President Obama. The poem is called "If African American Speeches Did Not Exist." I created this video to celebrate some of these historical figures and their historical speeches that shaped the African American communities, the United States of America, and the eventually the world. I heard someone say that injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere. I heard someone say that silence is violence. I heard someone say that the time to do right is always right. So it is important not to keep silence when wrong and injustice are prevailing. Open your mouth and speak your speech. It is time to use your voice to better your home, your country, and your world.
