"Trust" by Rolanda Pyle

Harlem

As I walk through Harlem, the tears began to fall                                        For this is the Mecca of my people, where we stand tall

It's where we first heard Malcolm's "by any means necessary," and Marcus' "back-to-Africa" call.              And Adam let us know that here is definitrly "black power" for all            And now what we hear as we walk down these streets                                  Are the ringing echoes of the Reverend Al's "no justice, no peace."

As I walk through Harlem, the tears begin to fall,                                       For this is the Mecca of my people, where we stand tall. 

The Schomburg Center, the Studio Museum and so much more                  Londells, Sylvia's, Copeland's - lots of food for sure                                      Then there's the World Famous Apollo on 125th Street,                               Where so many of our entertainers first showcased their beat.                    

As I walk through Harlem, the tears began to fall,                                    For this is the Mecca of my people, where we stand tall.

The Savoy, the Audubon, The Baby Grand and St.Theresa Hotel of old,     Then there's Strivers Row and Sugar Hill where you'll find the gold.             Abyssinian and Canaan Baptist are two of the prominent churches here.     You will also find City College up on the hill way up there.   

As I walk through Harlem, the tears begin to fall                                      For this is the Mecca of my people, where we stand tall. 

People from Africa, the Caribbean, down South and out West                     All moved to Harlem to try to do their best.                                                        So to me, there's no place like Harlem, where my people stand tall                   From our ancestors to descendants, Harlem welcomes them all!
