"Lift Every Voice and Sing" with Dr. Philip L. Clay
Wilmington native, Dr. Phillip L. Clay, stops by to discuss the song Lift Every Voice and Sing.
Once known as the Negro National Anthem (and still sometimes referred to as the African-American National Anthem) was written in 1901 by James Weldon Johnson (text) and his brother J. Rosamund Johnson (music).
Dr. Clay spoke last night at Kenan Auditorium. For more information, see Michelle Bliss's coverage of the event.
