Black men are the tall trees that remain standing in a forest after a fire.

Flame strips their branches,
Flame sears their limbs,
Flame scorches their trunks;
Yet stand these trees,
For their roots are thrust deep
in the heart of the earth.

Black men are the tall trees that remain standing in a forest after a fire.
