To Be Young Gifted and Black by Nina Simone

Young, gifted, and Black
Oh what a lovely precious dream
To be young, gifted, and Black
Open your heart to what I mean

In the whole world you'll know
There’s a million boys and girls
Who are young, gifted, and Black
And that's a fact!

You are young, gifted, and Black
We must begin to tell our young
There's a world waiting for you
Yours is the quest that's just begun

When you’re feeling real low
There's a great truth that you should know
When you're young, gifted, and Black
Your soul's intact!

To be young, gifted, and Black
Oh how I've longed to know the truth
There are times when I look back
And I am haunted by my youth

Oh but my joy of today
Is that we can all be proud to say
To be young, gifted, and Black
Is where it's at…Is where it's at…Is where it's at!
