Music can be as much a primary source for studying history, as a photograph, newspaper article or diary entry! The simple, aspirational lyrics of We Shall Overcome have been sung by everyone from churchgoers to civil rights protesters to Southern labor activists to the United States president. The song is part of a long history of protest music that has helped to open eyes and awaken consciences since the earliest years of American life, and the tradition continues today.
In this 3-hour workshop, students will explore the influence music has on the way that we feel, analyze We Shall Overcome lyrically, consider how it impacted the Civil Rights Movement, and write their own protest music!
