We Shall Overcome free pdf EVERYTHING you think you know about the song, "We Shall Overcome..".is WRONG. This is the Shocking, Untold Story of the iconic freedom-song, We Shall Overcome and its TRUE author, Louise Shropshire - a sharecropper's daughter and self-proclaimed "nobody," who through love and dedication to God, Gospel-music and the African-American Church, overcomes racism and poverty to find herself in the inner-circle of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey and the Civil Rights Movement. Along her way, Shropshire composes and copyrights a popular Gospel-hymn, which is secularized and hijacked by Pete Seeger and his powerful associates known to insiders as the "Folk Mafia." The sacred song is then unlawfully copyrighted by Seeger and his associates then peddled for untold millions all over the globe by Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen and countless others. Featuring more than 160 extraordinary photographs, this well sourced and cited compendium not only describes the disturbing details surrounding the misappropriation of Louise Shropshire's sacred hymn, but also explores the historical attitudes of Black-exploitation, subjugation and racism in America by non culture-bearers. -Attitudes that enabled such an unthinkable act to occur in the first place, and remain unchallenged for half a century. Although the US Library of Congress has called We Shall Overcome- "The Most Powerful Song of the 20th Century..".a song that raked in untold millions in royalties for its hijackers, Louise Shropshire would die penniless and unrecognized.
