Oh Freedom!

Posted: August 24, 2013 in for your reflection, Real Food For Thought, We fight on

This version of Oh Freedom by Shirley Verrett is on of our favorites. And you know we can still sing this song all over this country and all over the world. It was one of the first civil rights songs that I learned back in the day when we were still in high school and belonged to a group called the Fellowship Of Reconciliation through our church peace league. This version comes from her album, Singing in the Storm. We post in tribute to all the brave freedom fighters in the civil rights movement here in the U.S. We post this song for all people still struggling for freedom. We publish this song for  people and around the world. We publish this song for young black men who are harassed and murdered by the police. We publish this song for everyone who seeks freedom.
