In a Baltimore recording studio last weekend, about a dozen Longfellow Elementary School children stood in front of microphones and sang a list of professions - lawyer, artist, teacher, scientist, writer and actor - to which they aspire. Those lyrics are at the end of This Is Who We Are, a song written to promote the Black Saga Competition, an annual statewide event testing students' knowledge of African-American history. The song carries the theme that "the road we're traveling on has been paved by people who have done great things before us and allowed us to move to the future," said Chance Glenn, who wrote it. He also is the founder and lead songwriter of Morningbird Music, an independent music publishing company in the Baltimore-Washington area that is releasing the single.
