Learn The Black National Anthem - 'Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing'

Raise your voice!

As we celebrate Black history month we have to pay homage to our "Black National Anthem” - Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing. Written as a poem by NAACP leader James Weldon Johnson and set to music by his brother John Rosamond Johnson in 1899, this iconic song has uplifted our people for generations. 

Kirk Franklin and the family have one of our favorite renditions, watch below and sing along!
