Lift Every Voice and Sing James Weldon Johnson
This song was written eons ago. (1900) We’ve all seen the elders get choked all the way up when this song is performed, struggling to get the lyrics out while tears stream down their face. It’s real for them. But don’t judge; because, under the right circumstances you too may have to grab some tissue on the sly. And if there’s a slide show involved, they might have to carry you out.
