BRELAND – Intro Lyrics

Intro By BRELAND

In this place called a backroad

1619, the White Lion takes the first group of Black slaves to a colony in Virginia
Over the next two hundred fifty years, twelve million Africans were captured and transported into the Western world
Through Civil War, reconstruction, Jim Crowe and his Civil Rights Movement
The stench of racism prevail in America’s instutitions still
Through systemic discrimination, legislation and violence
This year’s no different

In this place called a backroad
