Asante Sana, 'Thank You' Father James E. Groppi by Ph. D. Shirley R. (Berry) Butler-Derge

Forty years ago, thousands of Milwaukee residents marched for equal rights to join and participate in local organizations, receive equal and appropriate educational resources for their children, and live where they wanted. Thus, the purpose of the book, Asante Sana, 'Thank You' Father James E. Groppi is to commemorate and honor the Father James E. Groppi and the Milwaukee NAACP Youth Council/Commandos who unselfishly put their lives on line and made a significant difference in making Milwaukee's history one that changed the livelihood for all living beings. Specifically, in the book: Asante Sana, 'Thank You' Father James E. Groppi, the author, who was one of the original founders of the Milwaukee NAACP Youth Council in 1964, poetically responds to some of the famous quotes of Father Groppi and the Milwaukee NAACP Youth Council members while they experienced life- threatening issues with racial discrimination in Milwaukee during the 1960's. (Asante Sana, "Thank You" Father James E. Groppi by Dr. Shirley R. (Berry) Butler-Derge (2010).

I revisit, just one more time,<p> Knowing I have say good-bye.<p> I am reborn from my ashes,<p> Like the phoenix.<p> I remember to hold onto my passions,<p> Though not a fan of fashion.<p> I release the pains you have caused,<p> Will there ever be a pause?<p> I realize what I will do with my life,<p> None of it having you in it cause little strife.<p> I will rise now,<p> You will always fall down.<p> (if it was good I will start posting different poems of every week... or try to at least)
