I will never hear the National Anthem the same way again after Ms Jill Scott sang her more accurate version at EssenceFest.
Here’s the required text:
Oh say can you see By the blood in the street That this place doesn't smile On you, colored child Whose blood built this land With sweat and their hands But you'll die in this place And your memory erased Oh say does this truth Hold any weight This is not the land of the free But the home of the slave
And oh look, Jill has a podcast
