To Be Young, Gifted, and Black!

To Be Young, Gifted and Black” is a song by Nina Simone with lyrics by Weldon Irvine. It was written in memory of Simone’s late friend Lorraine Hansberry, author of the play Raisin in the Sun.

My middle school music teach taught  me this song and it has been apart of my life every since! Thank you Ms. Northanton! Never forget what you are!

I am Young, Gifted, and Black! And that a FACT! With Love, Dee.
