Thread Name: Selma Song - Right! Right! (Len Chandler)
Subject: RE: Selma Song
Hmmm. Not sure if I understand what you're looking for, Bo. Sing Out! published a songbook by Guy & Candie Carawan called "Sing For Freedom," which is quite good, and Smithsonian Folkways came out with a companion CD with the same name. There's a 2-disc set from Folk Era called "Freedom is a Constant Struggle - Songs of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement," which is mostly white folksingers of the 60's singing songs about the civil rights movement. Smithsonian Folkways recently released a 2-CD set with lots of live recordings from civil rights events. All of these are very good. That should at least give you an idea of what's available.
