Walk tall black man
Walk tall for beneath
Your feet are a thousand
Brothers and sisters
Who’s history you are
Walk tall black man
Walk tall for within
That wide expanse
Of your arms are a
Million miles traveled
Throughout life’s journey
Walk tall black man
Walk tall beneath the
Glaze of hostility are
The eyes of knowing
That have born witness
To our peoples demise
Walk tall black man
Walk tall do not shed
A tear for the departed
For it is the living that
Are being put to the test
In a war that we could
Not have started for
Occupation was not ours
To confess
Walk tall black man
Walk tall for are you not
My brother my farther
My son the one to teach
Those yet to come of
Forgiveness and the being
Of one
Walk tall black man
Walk tall
