      Nice list!

      Most of my favorites have been mentioned. But I will add:

      "I Can" Nas
      "Black Woman and Child" Sizzla
      and "Buffalo Soldier" Bob Marley- I heard this song so much growing up that it is a favorite by default.
      "Oh Africa! When shall be the term of thy long degradation? Behold here, even now, I pledge thee, O my Mother, that I shall devote my years to thee, shall work for thy redemption, shall love thee and be proud of thee and glory in thy power now lying dormant and shall strive to bring it to the light. Take my youth, my labors, my love, my all and do thou when I shall have died for thee, take me to thy bosom, an untamed, untamable African." -Hubert Harrison
