We Shall Overcome
January is Civil Rights Month and we also celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. this month. Mr. Ferguson, a fourth grade teacher at Lafayette Regional School in Franconia, NH organized the Global Peace Video Project last September. We sang "Give Peace a Chance" for that project. This time Mr. Ferguson has organized a Civil Rights project. Here is our contribution, we sing "We Shall Overcome", which became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States during the 1950s and the 1960s. The song has since spread globally and is now sung around the world by people fighting for their civil rights.
