harlem over everything.
what is it like to step in your shoes?

my glasses, your hat, my coat, your gloves.

listen…i sit and listen…your voice echoes…down mean streets.

i hear you phillis, i hear you harriet,
i hear you june and langston, i hear you richard,
i hear you gwendolyn, i hear you malcolm, i hear you zora

u make waves for us. we make way for u.
