    Like nearly all folk songs, "We Shall Overcome" has a convoluted, obscure history that traces back to no single source. The Library of Congress locates the song's origins in "African American hymns from the early 20th century" and an article on dates the melody to an antebellum song called "No More Auction Block for Me" and the lyrics to a turn-of-the-century hymn written by the Reverend Charles Tindley of Philadelphia. The original lyric was one of personal salvation -- "I'll Overcome Someday" --but at least by 1945, when the song was taken up by striking tobacco workers in Charleston, S.C., it was transmuted into a statement of solidarity as "We Will Overcome." Needless to say, in its final form, "We Shall Overcome" became the unofficial anthem of the labor and Civil Rights movements and eventually came to be sung "in North Korea, in Beirut, Tiananmen Square and in South Africa's Soweto Township." class=smallblue> [1018] [837] [1003] [999] [846] [826] [836] [1070] [835] [834] [831] [833] [921] [832] [838] [841] [828] [830] [829]
