Resurrection Sunday

This inspirative poem was written as a funeral sermon by James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938), known for composing the lyrics to “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” (what some refer to “The Black National Anthem”) and also for being the first African American professor at NYU. It is herein presented as my Happy Easter greeting to all who celebrate.
