50 Years Later

King Jumped

One Hundred Years

After the Proclamation

That Called for Emancipation

Ending years of Bondage

In Theory Ending Suffrage

History tells us

The struggle still lay ahead

Many fought and lay dead

For a Land of Opportunity

Jump ahead Fifty Years

After His Dream

Crying streams of Tears

Dreaming the same Dream

Peace, Love and Equality

Dignity, Freedom and Prosperity

This is The Land Of Opportunity

This is The Land of Dreams
