Sunday Sing It Out: The Songs of Movement

Song has been key to the movement, lifting the spirit in the midst of struggle.  So, sing it out today with Mavis' Staples!

No matter the jail cell, detention center, hope thin in the air at the airport hanger,
Late night orders of relief from the pen of the judge,
We will stand at the edge of the wall
In the midst of the pipeline ditch
Outside every official gerry-meandered and suppressed into office
The words echo across our minds
Etched into our hearts
"no one is an outsider who is within these United States"
No stranger,
No foreigner
No illegal
in the cause of humanity
and the birth of her freedom
So we hold on to one another
And we fight
And we sing in the struggle
We sing on
