One man willing to stand up for his rights,
one woman willing to fight,
A man who has a dream for equality in the nation,
The woman on the bus encountering frustration,
Both of these people made a difference on the earth
Made a better life for those who felt less worth.

Two people who helped African Americans unite,
Worked together to ignite the fire,
that made them want to reach even higher.

This paved the way for me,
to get the same opportunities and be free.
