NEW WORLD PEOPLE

Pre-sale tix @ only $20 go on sale in August for "A Wound In Time" at http://www.nuyorican.org

New World People, you know who you are
A NEW BREED, existing as you are because of the ambitions
of proud and gallant travelers long ago
A whirlpool of races, colors, and nations brought together
A part of history-in-progress
Offspring of oppression, of aggression, of taboo, and yes... Of love
Spilling over, speaking many tongues, of old nations and new nations
Clawing through the thickets of hard times and hard lives
Bellies rising and falling through the centuries--The children fathered by many races--by many colors--by many nations
For five centuries breastfed and weaned in the darkest, coldest corners beyond
a society's mainstream
You grew to carry the legacy in this NEW WORLD, strange to your father
NEW WORLD PEOPLE... YOU are the legacy.
