Dreams activate creativity, innovation, and inventions
As African Americans we express ourselves in many forms. Throughout history we used storytelling, poetry, dance, art, and singing to share our cultural experiences. Even in our most troubled times we always managed to sing to hold onto our joy. We must teach our children the simplicity and beauty of art that comes alive by using one’s mind, heart, and hands. In this technology driven society we must teach our children to dream. Because dreams activate creativity, innovation, and inventions.
Bring me all of your dreams
Bring me all of your
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too rough fingers
Of the world.
