Hey Black Child The Root TV Culture

Congratulations are in order for the 2017 graduating kindergarten class at the Academy of Knowledge in Miami. The adorable kids were tasked with reciting the iconic poem “Hey Black Child” by Useni Eugene Perkins, and it’s everything you want it to be.

Check out the cuties in the video above:

Hey Black Child
Do you know who you are
Who you really are
Do you know you can be
What you want to be
If you try to be
What you can be

Hey Black Child
Do you know where you are going
Where you’re really going
Do you know you can learn
What you want to learn
If you try to learn
What you can learn

Hey Black Child
Do you know you are strong
I mean really strong
Do you know you can do
What you want to do
If you try to do
What you can do

Hey Black Child
Be what you can be
Learn what you must learn
Do what you can do
And tomorrow your nation
Will be what you want it to be
