  • Baraka means "blessing" in Hebrew, Arabic and Arabic-influenced languages....If we could tell the truth all the time, If we could be with our need to be loved ones and tell the truth, learning not just from books, learning from our bloodline, all would be harmony. Learning from justice, learning from work, learning from constancy, learning from love. If we could tell the truth all the time a terrible pressure would be on the world. It'd have to change if we changed so...[excerpt] Pressure to GrowAmiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones)
