We should over come was a song originally written I should over come but was change to we by Pete Seeger. This was one of the main songs sung during the civil rights movement to display to the world that the fought that blacks was fighting for was for a reason and one day they will win and overcome every hardship that was face by them by whites in America. But this song goes back to the Civil War when many was fighting for they freedom and to be free blacks. Then resurface when a young lady song it during a labor strike. But it didn’t have much meaning to Americans until Horton rediscover it and taught it to Pete Seeger. This song is more of displaying that one day everything will be behind of us and protest and movement isn’t just an action but what has to been for them to overcome challenges and move on to better life.
Another type of protest that has been going on is war. Marvin Gaye “Whats Going On” was talks about lost of jobs, an unknown war in Vietnam. During the late 2000 many problems araise and many singers came together to redo Gaye song. But now mnay are fighting and protesting against AIDS. An uncured virus that has been around for years killing millions a years. In the video it dispay not just but other issue and problems that we are facing now.
Its similair to we song overcome because but are a crisis that needs to stop one way or the other. Whereas equality is in the hand of people and their mind set, AIDS actaully is in the hand of people protecting and educating themselves so that no more peoplem will conyinue to die will a cure is unfound.
