Freedom, justice for us all
That’s our call, standing tall
Black lives matter!

Human rights for everyone,
Every daughter, every son
Black lives matter!

We condemn all race discrimination
It’s an ugly stain upon our nation

We need safety in our homes,
where we drive, walk, or run.
Black lives matter!


All the killing has to stop,
Prosecute killer cops
Black lives matter!

Fund the schools instead of jails
help us thrive, win not fail
Black lives matter

Put an end to mass incarceration
Now the people call for reparations

No one is expendable
Everyone’s valuable
Black lives matter!
