AT NARRAGANSETT *


They worked together when

They were young college men

Becoming brothers then

At Narragansett


In close colored cahoots

Waiting on rich white snoots

To buy themselves new suits

At Narragansett


Upstanding colored boys

The white priv'leged employs

To assist with their joys

At Narragansett


Just what they were and who

And all they were to do

Nobody ever knew

At Narragansett


For decades each then went

In any brave event

Following summers spent

At Narragansett


Through strong decades they knew

They both had remained true

To brotherhood, they grew

At Narragansett



*Narragansett Pier, once a summer resort in Rhode Island,

where Oscar Brown Sr. and Paul Robeson were employed
