The world was inspired by the African American fight for social justice, and the songs of that era continue to be sung around the world as a symbol of the formerly oppressed rising up to overthrow the yoke of oppression. Jazz singer Deloris Scott recounts the era of activism that was galvanized by musical performers who sang songs that spoke to the hearts of the people. As part of the musical group that traveled with Rev. Jesse Jackson, Ms. Scott recalls how the singers and band members were also part of the protest marchers and organizers who helped secure political and economic gains.
