We Shall Overcome

Fred reads a final passage from a Martin Luther King Jr. speech. He delivered these words to an audience in Atlanta in 1961, and in this speech, he recognized the theme song that students had developed for the movement, "We shall overcome, deep in my heart I believe, we shall overcome." Then we hear the Glee Clubs of Morehouse and Spelman Colleges sing "We Shall Overcome."
