This arrangement of Lift Every Voice and Sing is our tribute to the rich cultural legacy of this anthem. We begin the song with a chant: “Lift every voice. Everyone has a choice. I will lift up my voice and LET IT RING”. This chant serves as a reminder to each of us that our voices matter. And, we will continue to speak up in our classrooms, schools, and communities. Every student has a voice that should be cultivated, supported, and appreciated.
Utilize this resource to diversify your curriculum. We have included various teaching tools through movement, instrument playing, singing, and critical thinking to get your students engaged in the cultural importance of Lift Every Voice and Sing. Invite your students to think beyond the music on the page. Welcome the spirit of the Johnson brothers, whose creative genius is still alive today.
This final product is a collaboration between three musicians and educators: Alicia Engram, Otto Gross, and Franklin Willis. All three of us share the same passion for student engagement, learning, and brilliance. Every music teacher has their own creative approach to teaching. However, we crafted this document to give music teachers ideas on how to incorporate this song into their curriculum. Use this song to build community, make music, and lift every voice.
