Where I'm From, a poem by George Ella Lyon, writer and teacher “Where I'm From” grew out of my response to a poem from Stories I Ain't Told Nobody Yet (Orchard Books, 1989; Theater Communications Group, 1991) by my friend, Tennessee writer Jo Carson.

We Shall Overcome By Ed Ward You'd think, because different political movements have different specific goals and details, that a universal song of struggle would be impossible, and, for the most part, you'd be right. But nothing comes closer than "We Shall Overcome." Today, most people think it's a traditional Negro spiritual, but that isn't the case. Spirituals evolved out of the slave experiences of African Americans and often focus on liberation and deliverance, with the lyrics usually in coded form, because you wouldn't want the wrong person to hear you singing them. "We Shall Overcome," as it's sung today, is derived from a hymn, "I'll Overcome Some Day," by Charles Albert Tindley, born around 1851 to slave parents in Maryland.
