Martin Luther King's 86th Birthday

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power
to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil
in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.
(15 Jan 1929 - 04 Apr 1968)

We Shall Overcome

Lyrics derived from Charles Tindley's gospel song "I'll Overcome Some Day" (1900), and opening and closing melody
from the 19th-century spiritual "No More Auction Block for Me" (a song that dates to before the Civil War). According
to Professor Donnell King of Pellissippi State Technical Community College (in Knoxville, Tenn.), "We Shall Overcome"
was adapted from these gospel songs by "Guy Carawan, Candy Carawan, and a couple of other people associated
with the Highlander Research and Education Center, currently located near Knoxville, Tennessee. I have in my possession
copies of the lyrics that include a brief history of the song, and a notation that royalties from the song go to support the Highlander Center."


I do believe
We shall overcome some day


We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand some day

We shall all be free
We shall all be free
We shall all be free some day

We are not afraid
We are not afraid
We are not afraid some day

We are not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone some day

The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome some day
