Who wrote the famous song ‘We Shall Overcome’? Turns out, ‘we’ did.

How can our world move from ‘I’ to ‘We’?

MSU School of Journalism Professor of the Bias Busters program

This summer, our MSU Bias Busters team is launching some of the most widely celebrated books in its series of books to combat bigotry and build healthy communities. In August, for example, we all took part in a marvelous session at a conference of journalism educators in Detroit to launch 100 Questions and Answers about the Black Church.

The most inspiring and educational moments in that program was the Rev. Robert Jones talking about the origins of the famous protest song We Shall Overcome.

Please enjoy the video, above, share it with friends—and visit our Bias Busters channel on YouTube to enjoy more videos.
