Anything is Possible (Black History Rap)

Performed by Roshon Fegan

Listen up y'all, I got a story to tell!
By the time I'm done y'all gon' know it pretty well
We're goin' back in black his-to-ry
To see some African American achievements that came to be!

Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!
No obstacle!
Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!

Martin
Rosa
And Thurgood, too
Fought for equal rights to come true
They all shared one big dream
For us to become a united team!

Let's go!

Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!
No obstacle!
Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!
Anything is possible!
Put your mind to it! And you can do it!

Broken barriers, justice for all!
Made Jackie Robinson the first black man to hit a Major League baseball!
What seemed impossible became a dream come true
Magic, Julius and Michael Jordan, too!

Traffic light!
The filament for lights!
Created by African Americans—that's pretty tight!
Bessie! The first licensed to fly
And Mae Jemison went even more high! The first to make it in space!
And in tennis, Arthur and Althea slammed at their own pace
Hattie and Sidney Poitier made history
As the first African Americans to win an aca-de-my!

Put your mind to it and you can do it!
Put your mind to it and you can do it!

Now there's doctors, lawyers, professors and more!
All the way up to prez No. 44!

Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!
Anything is possible! With hard work there's no obstacle!

If you believe you can also achieve!
Stay in school, 'cause that's what's cool!
Have a dream? And it can be!
And maybe one day we'll be talkin' about you in history!
