Songs of self-advocacy and self-determination

Don’t black us out!

Energy should be free
It’s a gift from the sun
Energy should be free
Like photons on the run

You and me, should be free
As free as anyone
You and me should be free
To be what we can become

Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!

Dignity should be free
Respect shouldn’t cost a dime
All of us, will be free
It’s just a matter of time

Energy should be free
It’s a gift from the sun
Energy should be free
Like photons on the run

Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!

Community should be free
Free for everyone
When that’s true, community
Will be what it can become

Dignity should be free
Respect shouldn’t cost a dime
All of us will be free
It’s just a matter of time

Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
Don’t black us out!
