Black History Month

Lift Every Voice singing Challenge 

February Is Black History Month!

To help celebrate, we are hosting a TikTok singing challenge. The Black National Anthem is "Lift Every Voice and Sing," which was written as a poem by James Weldon Johnson in 1900. His brother then composed the music for the lyrics. We will host a singing challenge with this song.

Can you sing? Or do you just want to perform your rendition?

If so, please post a clip of you singing the first verse or any verse of your choice. Join the challenge, join the fun! We will highlight all participants and one winner at the end of the month. Use the form to upload your info and link to your video or feel free to post directly on TikTok and tag us @matcmilwaukee. Use the hashtag #LEVChallengeMATC
