35th President of the United States
Tribute to John Fitzgerald Kennedy
His works and memories linger,
While his body lies silently at rest.
Poets, musicians, and singers of great men speak:
“Kennedy ! One of the best.” ->
He fought bravely and strongly for the Negro Race,
To him the word “Negro” should bear no disgrace.
He fought for justice, equality and peace,
His stride toward Civil Rights never ceased.
So let us unselfishly pay tributes to him.
Honor his beliefs and respect his name.
“His light in the hearts of men will ne’er grow dim!’
Perhaps this, may be his great Hymn.
—Lovellia Johnson ‘65
