Baba Chuck

Baba Chuck

“To understanding the culture, study the dance.
 To understand the dance, study the culture.”     -- Chuck Davis

He recalls Malcolm X putting an arm around
 his shoulders and saying, “young brother,
everything’s going to be all right.”


I am listening!

We listen
and watch
and wait,

for dance to change the world.

Let the dancers bring world peace.

(Poet’s note:  Chuck Davis is the founder of the African American Dance Ensemble of Durham, North Carolina)
