Sweet Honey in the Rock…

1 Dec

On World AIDS Day and in a time of such xenophobia and greed in the United States, I thought it would be great to listen to Would You Harbor Me, by one of my favorite groups, Sweet Honey in the Rock.  Here is the video.  Here are thy lyrics:

Would you harbor me? Would I harbor you?
Would you harbor me? Would I harbor you?

Would you harbor a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew,
A heretic, convict, or spy?
Would you harbor a runaway woman or child,
A poet, a prophet, a king?
Would you harbor an exile or a refugee,
A person living with AIDS?
Would you harbor a Tubman, a Garret, a Truth,
A fugitive or a slave?
Would you harbor a Haitian, Korean, or Czech,
A lesbian or a gay?

Would you harbor me? Would I harbor you
