We Shall Overcome: The Story of a Song
by Debbie Levy;  illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton 

It only takes a few words to create change. It only takes a few people to believe that change is possible. And when those people sing out, they can change the world. "We Shall Overcome" is one of their songs. From the song's roots in America's era of slavery through to the civil rights movement of the 1960s and today, "We Shall Overcome" has come to represent the fight for equality and freedom around the world. This important book, lyrically paired with elegant, collage-style art, pays tribute to the heroic spirit of the famous song that encompasses American history.
