Lift Every Voice and Sing to be performed at the SuperBowl

This petition had 44 supporters

The Super Bowl takes place during Black History month and the NFL should honor the plight of African Americans (who make up approx. 70% of the NFL), by acknowledging a rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” one of the most cherished songs of the African American Civil Rights Movement and which is often referred to as the Black National Anthem. 


Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening 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.
