Sing for Freedom


Out of stock


The story of the Civil Rights Movement through its songs.

Hymns, speeches, spirituals, gospel songs, and prayers…a moving civil rights collection drawn from 1960s field recordings in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. The compilation captures the irrepressible spirit of that era and reveals a determined and triumphant African American culture. A collection of glorious songs and heartstopping selections by The SNCC Freedom Singers, Martin Luther King, Jr., Ralph Abernathy, and others.

“…there is wonderful singing here, great conviction, and the immediacy of living truth…powerful documentation of the most important social movement of our time.” — Sing Out!
