Inspired by the words and actions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., We Shall Overcome ties together a living lineage of music and culture that includes traditional gospel, modern gospel, classical, jazz, Broadway, and spirituals. Five astounding singers and a quartet of musicians led by music director Damien Sneed bring together songs from Aretha Franklin, Duke Ellington, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, and Donny Hathaway, as well as traditional spirituals, with excerpts from Dr. King’s recorded speeches 50 years after his death – evoking the inspirations, struggles, and triumphs of civil rights activists and defenders.
