We honor our ancestors and brothers of 1800

Those who fought in the war

Those who fought for this country

Those that labored, working hard in the cotton field

 

During those days a cold glass of water meant a lot

So did the cool breeze from the trees

 

We honor our famous black slaves and give thanks to America,

who brought us this far to be where we are now

 

We honor those that struggled very hard to keep America what it is.

 

We thank all famous leaders:

Martin Luther King

President Kennedy

Abraham Lincoln

Frederick Douglas

and so on…

 

Who got segregation to where it is now,

as we reunite as one race now
