The Historical and Cultural Significance of "Lift Every Voice and Sing"

Dr. Timothy Askew will discuss the song by James Weldon Johnson and John Rosamond Johnson. African American educational, political, and cultural leaders have contributed to the reception of this song. He will explore the issue of how the song offers a window in understanding the political and social consciousness of African Americans in each decade of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries—historically and culturally.
