Symbolism behind the four primary colors of the African Kenté
BLACK - symbolizes the color of our skin.
GREEN - symbolizes the color of grass, or the earth, most importantly Africa the Motherland from which we were plucked up from against our wills and brought to America.
RED - symbolizes the color of the blood that was shed in the Middle Passage (i.e., the trip from the Africas to the Americas).
YELLOW - symbolizes the color of the sun, or hope for us to continue the struggle until we all are free. In the case of abortion, the freedom lies in making sure little Black unborn babies safely make it out of the womb to live out their destiny-filled lives.
