Africa Must Wake Up

“Africa must wake up, the sleeping sons of Jacob

For what tomorrow may bring, may a better day come

Yesterday we were kings, can you tell me young ones

Who are we today?

The black oasis, Ancient Africa the sacred

The sleeping giant, science art is your creation…”

Damian Marley and Nas collaborated in 2010 on an album entitled ‘Distant Relatives’. Much of the album touches on Africa and its struggles. In light of my post on Importing our own Exports it seems rather fitting. Africa truly is a sleeping giant and yet we are the originators of so much that is seen in the world today. Poetic.
