Correction

In Carolyn Schultz’s article on Obama’s inauguration in the Jan. 23 issue, the song quoted as part of the Rev. Joseph Lowery’s benediction speech was incorrectly cited as being from James Weldon Johnson’s “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing.” Lowery quoted Johnson’s song earlier in his benediction. In fact, Lowery borrowed portions of Big Bill Broonzy’s “Get Back (Black, Brown and White)” for the portions of his benediction quoted in Schultz’s article.
