I'm just a little thrilled that this song is now known as the Black National Anthem. I still remember us refusing to stand at events for the Star Spangled Banner one. Then this one started being sang and slowly but surely it went 'viral.'

Now, I'm torn.

I learned it from TV, no reason not to teach it to black children

I will teach my children that white people are soulless creatures that steal, kill and lie....and to never trust them.
Then I'll teach them how great black people are at everything and how we invented everything.

Wow a lot of people do not know this song. too sad. As a black person it is your duty to know at least the first verse.

Was it at the 11 am service? I usually go to the 8 am or the Saturday night services.

 
It was probably his John Rosamond Johnson's great-grandson, James Weldon Johnson's great nephew. I've seen him at other places but I forget his name.
