Black Fraternity Member Writes Powerful Song in Response to Gun Violence in America


Emorja Roberson a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has used his talents to speak out for peace after the recent school shootings across the nation.

In May 2017, Roberson became the first African-American to graduate with a Master of Sacred Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Notre Dame and along with composing and performing music, he currently is Director of Music for Olivet African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Choir Director for the Indiana University South Bend Gospel Choir.

Like many Americans, Roberson was fed up when he saw another shooting in the news.

“Our country has experienced a countless number of shootings due to gun violence within the past 2 years,” he wrote in a statement to Watch The Yard. “No, I have not personally lost someone from these tragedies, but it effects us all in some way. We never know when death will hit our door, but it’s our duty to treat everyone with love and remind them that they are important. I wrote this song for us, our country, but our world.”
