Kanye West Recites Poem in Elementary School-Dedicated to Dr. King
Kanye West was born a star. Watch as he recites a poem dedicated to Dr. King in 1990 at Vanderpol Elementary School.
His Name Means Love
“A man who fought for freedom
A man who fought for equality
Those who were against him
Were too blind to see
what this man was fighting for
So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door
Yes, we know that this man is great
That’s why today we celebrate
And everyone lifts their voice and sing
For a man who wanted freedom to ring
Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of
A man who’s name means love”
Today and forever we will celebrate the life of a true hero.
