People Get Ready

da Sing for Freedom - The Story of the Civil Rights Movement through its songs. Edited and compiled by Guy and Candie Carawan.

In addition to Jimmy Collier's songs, the 'End the Slums' movement has adapted many rhythm and blues songs. To the urban Negro of today, many of these songs provide an emotional release from the omnipresent suffering, while stimulating the will to struggle, serving them in much the same manner as the spirituals served their enslaved forefathers.

David Llorens, "New Birth in the Ghetto", Sing Out! July 1966
