Lest We Forget, Vol. 1: Movement Soul, Sounds of the Freedom Movement in the South, 1963-64

Songs played a large role in the movement to close the racial divide in America during the 1960s, and prayers, chants, sermons, and shouts were also fundamental to this task. This album features clips of these cries for freedom heard across the southern states of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the District of Columbia. At voter registration rallies, in churches, at conferences or during mass meetings these words changed lives.
