APRIL IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH!


Today, I spotlight a Revolutionary Brother. A Political Activist and a Political Prisoner. A Black Panther Captain of the San Francisco Chapter. An Iconic Black Panther who worked closely with The Black Panther Party Free Breakfast for Children's Program. Brother Charles Bursey's work was captured through the photographic lens of Ruth-Marion Baruch and Pirkle Jones for a photo essay on The Black Panthers. The image is now iconic.


CHARLES BURSEY

TEARS OF JOYS

Tear of Joy

Tear of Horror

What makes these tears so

distinct?

Die today

Die tomorrow

What makes life so distinct,

Some men will be triumphant

Other men will die

There to fight,

There to struggle,

The Revolution and total Destruction

of this racist decadent

imperialist American society is

my battle cry.
