On June 155th, Google produced a video Doodle that focuses on the very first verse of the poem, “Lift Each Voices and Sing,” which is commonly known as the Black national anthem. The video is a 90th video, which honors the end of slavery in the United States. The video features art by Elijah Jamal ‘s creator, Loveis Smart, and LeVar Burton reads this poem.
“We consider ‘Lift Every Voice & Sing’ the Black national anthem. It’s a song that, when we gather, it’s a part of the gathering,”@levarburton, who narrated today’s animated Juneteenth Google Doodle video, said.
