We take for granted the freedoms we have
The biggest freedom of all to some
Are civil rights and liberty
African Americans will stand on my behalf.
We often do not look back at the past as if we were there
We do not take a moment to realize all we have
A war was fought
An unforgettable speech was given
We know the basics of the Civil War
But do we know the basis of civil rights?
African Americans fought for their freedom
Today there is still discrimination
Take a stand.
Lend a hand.
Remember the outcast
Just like the whites should have remembered the blacks
We are all equal
To God, there is no favorite.
