Inspiring Chant about our Duty

I recently went to an event in Boston where Carl Williams from ACLU spoke.  Carl, my activist sister, and two others received a Drylongso award  from CCI for being "ordinary people doing extraordinary things."  

Carl led us in a passionate call-and-response chant that the Black Lives Matter movement uses.  

I found it powerful and moving so I researched and found it to post here.  -DG

This is by Assata Shakur:

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Carl also said this:
We have two choices: confront racism or ignore racism.
