I don't have the verses yet (I'd have to transcribe them), but here's a link to the beautiful YouTube video
Rosa Sat (Amy Dixon-Kolar)
Here's the accompanying blurb:
"Written and performed by Amy Dixon-Kolar (c) 2008 Asharta Music/ASCAP. This was written a few days after November 4, 2008 and was inspired by the quote used as the chorus and the celebrations and photos of this historic day. Photographer Bernie Kleina was kind enough to give permission for me to use his photos of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the murals in the Pilsen area of Chicago.
Recorded December, 2008 by John Abbey, New Soup Studio, Chicago, IL
And here's the chorus:
"Rosa sat so Martin could walk;
Martin walked so Barack could run;
Barack ran, he ran and he won
So that all our children could fly."
Which comes from this quotation:
"Rosa sat so Martin could walk; Martin walked so Barack could run;
Barack ran so all our children could fly>"
Where is this quotation from? Check these links:
