Alandes Powell

Alandes Powell knew there was something that needed to be done. With a vision and a plan of what she would like to see, she began to execute with urgency. After penning the poem, "We Want What You Want," she has continued to work tirelessly to see that vision come to life.   Raised with understanding the importance of taking a stand for what was right and having a passion for the community, she has inspired many with the fire lit by witnessing her father's activism. Today, Alandes continues to fight for the rights of her people both in the corporate setting and in her community.

We Want What You Want

Finding Voice Through Art

by Alandes Powell

We Want What You Want

To raise our kids in Peace

We Want What You Want

To provide for our families

We Want What You Want

To live free from unjust persecution

We Want What You Want

To be treated equally, fair and just

We Want What You Want

For rules that oppress people like us to be lifted

We Want What You Want

For systems designed to negatively impact our families to be eradicated

We Want What You Want

To truly see this as a land of opportunity

We Want What You Want

To witness our children, grow into adults 

We Want What You Want

To play with our grandchildren and celebrate as they graduate from high school and college

We Want What You Want

To walk in a place of Education and know it is truly used to educate

 

We Want What You Want

For others to see the males in our lives as gentlemen with kind hearts and not thugs and criminals

We Want What You Want

For others to see the ladies who look like us as beautiful and deserving of equal rights just like the ladies in your life

 

We Want What You Want

Equal Pay, equal opportunities, and to know you desire our presence at your professional table

and not just tolerate it

 

We Want What You Want

To know that the people carrying the gun have a desire to protect and not kill

 

We Want What You Want

To know that your voice will speak against the wrongs and support the rights

 

We Want What You Want

A place that our Art of Blackness will be safe as it hangs in your place

 

We Want What You Want

Nothing more and Nothing less
