Official Song of the AfroTraditionalist?

That vanished tribe I am from, the American Negro, has always found a way to express our perspectives musically whether it was on the plantation, in the juke joint or in the church. We took classical music’s instruments, improvised, and created Jazz. Read the bible and  turned God’s word into a passionate music called Gospel. Studied the preacher’s sermons and gave it that spin you may hear in a Baptist ministers sermon- we always found away to make something ours. Sometimes our additions are obvious other times you can’t pin point it you can only feel it. What you feel, the old Jazz cats would call, swing other times “soul”., but here the focus is swing.
The song that reflects this is not the most important song in our history nor is it even my favorite song but the message expresses what we stand for here.
