Our Black men are strong, courageous, smart,
Are they afraid of the black man?
Are they afraid of the pigment within?
These black men had a dream -MLKJ
These black men had a voice -M.X.
These black men wanted to get home -T.M.
These black men wanted to play -T.R.
These black men wanted to breathe -E.G.
These black men needed change
Embrace my words
Hear what I say
The black man lives yesterday and today.
