IN THE 1960’S WE HAD OUR SAY
BUT DID WE REALLY PAVE THE WAY?
WHO ARE YOU?
BLACK OR WHITE?
CAN WE PASS THROUGH THE NIGHT?
IS IT REALLY OUR RIGHT!
WHO ARE THOSE MEN THAT RIDE THROUGH THE NIGHT?
PRESIDENT JOHNSON ARE YOU OUR LINCOLN?
WHAT ARE WE REALLY THINKIN?
MOMA I’M AFRAID, CAN I GO TO THAT SCHOOL?
THE LORD WILL KEEP YOU CHILD FROM THE CRUEL
FOR THAT IS GOD’S RULE
THANK YOU MR. JAMES MEREDITH FOR BEING THAT LEADER, A SOLDIER AND A BRAVE SOUL
ALL ALONG YOU WERE BEING WATCHED BY THE MISSISSIPPI PATROL
MARCH AGAINST FEAR!
IS IT CLEAR OUR TIME IS NEAR?
FREEDOM RIDES?
WE HAVE THE LORD AS OUR GUIDE
WE SANG,” WE WILL OVERCOME”
AND YES, “I DO HAVE A DREAM”
THANK YOU MARTIN LUTHER KING
