The first song played was “Lift Every Voice and Sing” by James Johnson, members of the Black Student Union passed out the lyrics to the audience.

“Lift every voice and sing, Till earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of Liberty; Let our rejoicing rise High as the list’ning skies, Let it resound loud as the rolling sea. Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us; Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, Let us march on till victory is won.”

Along with the music, the BSU brought pizza and a board with Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech were students can write the dreams and goals they have for themselves. LLCC student Jhiiel Mcgee, 22, wrote down some of the goals he has set for this life on the board.
