Lift Every Voice - J. Rosamond Johnson - Netflix

John Rosamond Johnson (August 11, 1873 – November 11, 1954), most often referred to as J. Rosamond Johnson, was an American composer and singer during the Harlem Renaissance. Born in Jacksonville, Florida, he had much of his career in New York City. Johnson is most notable as the composer of the hymn “Lift Every Voice and Sing”, which has come to be known in the United States as the “Negro National Anthem”. It was first performed live by 500 Black American students from the segregated Stanton School (elementary/middle/junior high-level), Jacksonville, Florida, in 1900. The song was published by Joseph W. Stern & Co., Manhattan, New York (later the Edward B. Marks Music Company). J. Rosamond Johnson was the younger brother of poet and activist James Weldon Johnson. James Weldon Johnson wrote the lyrics for “Lift Every Voice and Sing”. The two also worked together in causes related to the NAACP.
