For the month of February, Walking Worthy will be dedicated to the celebration of Black History Month.
We have loved the Casual Conversations and intentional emphasis that Southeastern has devoted to diversity on our campus and in our churches. This month, we will continue the discussion with posts from students and faculty. In today’s post, Mrs. Faye Dunbar shares a song that she enjoys singing in praise and worship to our God, especially during this month.
“Lift Every Voice and Sing”
James Weldon Johnson was an American author, educator, diplomat, songwriter, and civil rights activist. On the occasion of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday in 1900, James Weldon Johnson wrote “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” It was popular in the black community and became known as the “Negro National Anthem.” During Black History Month, the song is sung in many African American churches. We hope you enjoy this song!
