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.
