Lyric sheet and lyrics with rhythm: This 23 verse rap traces the history of hip hop beginning in Africa and goes through Spirituals, Ragtime, Blues, Jazz, Gospel, Soul, Old School Hip Hop, Rap, and Hip Hop. It also encompasses significant events in Black history such as the slave trade, emancipation proclamation, the great migration, civil rights, Rosa Parks, and Dr Martin Luther King Jr. I have used in in my music curriculum with grades 3 - 8. It makes a wonderful basis for a year long study into Black history and it's music. My students LOVE this rap and beg to say it year after year once they know it! I have more curriculum products related to this that I will add.
