Recognize and honor men and women who fought for emancipation and those who fought for the civil liberties of Black Americans well into the twentieth century on a tolley tour in a historic cemetery  led by Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman, along with Moses Phillips, lecturer in ethnomusicology, music theory, and critical theory at Medgar Evers College. Make a special stop at the grave of James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938), the man who wrote “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” widely regarded today as the “Black National Anthem.” Phillips will sing with a rendition of this powerful song and offer a flute interlude.
