Talk:Lift Every Voice and Sing
|WikiProject African diaspora|
Besides the release in the 1990s, wasn't there another version of Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing done (in the Jazz/Blues genre) sometime prior to the mid-1980s?18.104.22.168 00:44, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
- Listen to her, starting at 14 minutes in. . That's not "the tune of the American national anthem" at all. Not even close. And whatever tune she was trying to perform, she missed THAT one too. Kar98 (talk) 23:58, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
The article has a fairly glaring inconsistency that needs to be corrected. Two dates are given for the music. The introduction gives 1900. The history section gives 1905. The quotes at this web site may be helpful http://www.graceandjamesweldonjohnson.org/lift-every-voice/ I do not feel qualified to do the edit myself. 7802mark (talk) 18:21, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Regardless of how you feel about black people being human beings, there should be a link to a proper solid performance of this anthem somewhere in the article about it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:02, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
