Sojourner's Place songs  

Posted by SjP in ,

My first thought for this week's OSF post was to conclude with another tribute and commemoration of the Kent State Massacre 38 years ago. But, realizing that this has been a "dark" and somewhat depressing blogging week for ole' SjP - still reeling over that 12 hour email conversation with Peggy from American Thinker, I decided to asked my Best Half for his advise. He said, given the content of my previous post, through my uppity negro eyes, I should post this song sung by a truly soulful legend and used in what many consider one of most important movies of our time. This song is fitting and serves as a prophetic message that may no longer be a dream deferred - but a reality within our grasp and our lifetime. Thank you, Baby! This is perfect and right on time.

No introduction needed or required - only a warning that you may need a tissue. Listen, enjoy, and celebrate!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner('s Place) ain't got nothing more to say. ~~SjP

Lawd have mercy! This is a classic and it's very moving. Thanks.
Enjoy your weekend. I play one more again before I leave.

The sweet sweet sounds of the one and only Sam Cooke. He was my Grandma's favorite.

I remember my mother used to sing this song around the house...I never understood until I heard the song in Malcolm X (yeah, it took me that long)...

Truly inspiring! Thanks!

Yes, this song will always synonymous with the movie Malcolm X; it is a very inspirational song indeed; Sam simply made a classic!

I have been humming this song since I came across it again on your blog. It makes me wonder why we don't make music like this anymore.

...and what music our children will be inspired by when they get our age...kind of sad wouldn't you say? SjP
