The season premiere of the TELEVISION program black-ish featured this Schoolhouse Rock!-influenced history lesson concerning the closing of enslavement in America. That alone would certainly be cool however they went the extra mile and produced computer animated versions of The Roots to tell the tale. It’s actually well done as well as fairly poignant.
Sing along … to the song of “I’m just an expense” (lyrics cribbed from the YouTube comment’s section):
Yes, I’m just a slave
They’ll position my body in an unmarked grave
It’s kinda tough to raise every voice vocal singing
While worrying regarding just how reduced the sweet chariots are turning
I wish and also hope that they don’t kill me today
I am a servant in the house of the take on
If I fidget or the tiniest little bit nervous
In the presence of the Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, or British
They kept me in colonial chains
Inform me how to persuade them to cool
Or to conserve me as well as still I’m a servant
Go on, jump into Juneteenth rabbit opening.
