Sunday Praise & Worship | Mavis Staples

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Mavis Staples performed “We Shall Overcome” at the Civil Rights Summit to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act.

In 1963, with their celebrity rising thanks to a nationwide folk and blues revival, the Staple Singers delivered a concert in Montgomery, Alabama, that was attended by Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and they had the opportunity to speak with the civil rights leader after the show. The meeting had a profound effect on the group’s direction, and for the next several years they wrote songs exclusively in support of the American civil rights movement.

    Gooooooood morning, ladies!

    • Good morning, Vitamin. How are you making it in the heat with the mail? It’s hot as everything here.

      • vitaminlover says:

        Thank God for air conditioning in my car! Our heat index is at triple digits as I am sure yours is. How is your daughter doing with it?

    • Ametia says:

      Vitamin, top of the morning to you Lady.

    • She uses her car and thank God for air conditioning. I don’t think they have air conditioning in the mail trucks. I could be wrong tho. She hasn’t taken the mail trucks in awhile tho.

      • vitaminlover says:

        Most of the City carriers’ vehicles don’t have a/c. I think it is a disgrace that they don’t. They have those tacky fans that just move that hot air around. I am glad your daughter has her own vehicle, bless her.
