The Rose of Black is Sacred by swo8 Blues Jazz lyrics by Shelby Cortland

Every single time another ‘Black rose’ is felled by racism, hatred and prejudice, Leslie posts “The Rose Of Black Is Sacred!”

How many times must she feel compelled to post this? And why the need?

The silence is deafening!

The Rose of Black is Sacred was inspired by the great American poet and lyricist, Shelby Cortland. It is a cry from the soul for the people who have lost their lives by racially focused police. Today we are called to remember the lives of Alton Sterling, who lost his life at the hands of the Baton Rouge Police and Philando Castile whose life was taken by the Minnesota Police.
