A Quote from Bernard Dadié: “Thank You God for Making me Black”


Rire / Laughter

Je vous remercie mon Dieu, de m’avoir créé Noir, Je porte le Monde depuis l’aube des temps Et mon rire sur le Monde, dans la nuit crée le jour.

I thank you God, for having created me black, I carry the world since the beginning of times And my laughter on the world, at night created the day.


Aube / Dawn

  1. That is certainly a quote from a man who had enough self-love.
