the joy of a new beginning

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labor rest,

and in the joy of a new beginning,

we ask ya to help us work for that day,

when Blacks will not be asked to get back

when Brown can stick around

when Yella can be mella

when the Red man can get ahead man

and when White can embrace what is right.

 

~ Dr Joseph E Lowrey, inauguration benediction, Jan 2009
