"Lift Every Voice" is also a great song--we sing it every year--with about 250 black and white singers--and the whole Kennedy Center Concert Hall belting it out--as part of an annual Martin Luther King celebration. Incredibly stirring--no matter how many times you do it.

The song also has in many ways a lot more to recommend it than the adopted and adapted English drinking song the US wound up with.
