RMO is working on "We Shall Not Be Moved" in conjunction with the Poor People's Campaign (PPC) and the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA)'s choir, Sing in Solidarity.
"We Shall Not Be Moved" is an African-American spiritual, hymn, and protest song dating to the early 19th century American south. The song describes being "like a tree planted by the waters" who "shall not be moved" because of faith. Secularly, as "We Shall Not Be Moved" gained popularity as a protest and union song of the Civil Rights Movement. This song has stood the test of time by evolving over the course of decades and centuries, and has been covered by Pete Seeger, Sweet Honey in the Rock, The Seekers, Peter, Paul and Mary, and Public Enemy. Most notably for our purposes, Joan Baez sang this song in Spanish under the title "No Nos Moverán."
When performed, we will use measures 13-16 as an intro.
