Transcript of I'm Gonna Sit At The Welcome Table, Freedom Song.

I Am Gonna Sit At The
Welcome Table! A Sit-In A sit in is were African americans will
"sit-in" at a non black lunch counter and
wait too be served. Most times they
were beaten and sent to jail. By: Soren and Henry The Welcome Table Freedom Rides Freedom Riders were things African Americans did to
express the unfairness of the bus segregation.
Often they were fire bombed in the
middle of the rides. Freedom Fighters Freedom fighters were people who participated the sit-ins and freedom rides.They were the fighters of the civil rights movement. Thanks for spending
your time on this prezi. Still by: Soren and Henry Sit At The Welcome
Table! Who Wrote The Welcome
Table!? The man who wrote the welcome table is...unknown. Possibly made by African Americans too support the sit-ins. We think that the possible culprit for the song was made by a group of students or in a church where someone was bored and made the song for the amazingly awesome WHO CIVIL RIGHTS! I'm gonna sit at the welcome table,
I'm gonna sit at the welcome table one of these days,
Hallelujah!
I'm gonna sit at the welcome table,
I'm gonna sit at the welcome table one of these days.

I'm gonna feast on milk and honey,
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days,
Hallelujah!
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey,
I'm gonna feast on milk and honey one of these days.

I'm gonna sit at the Woolworth counter,
I'm gonna sit at the Woolworth counter one of these days,
Hallelujah!
I'm gonna sit at the Woolworth counter (and eat!),
I'm gonna sit at the Woolworth counter one of these days. Lyrics to
"I'm Going To Sit At
The Welcome Table." What role did this song
play in the Civil Rights. The song played a role during the sit-ins when freedom fighters would sing the song and it would give them hope and the courage to go on freedom fighting! Are Thoughts About The
Civil Rights! SOREN: I think its a wonderful song that would have inspired everyone who listened to it to go on freedom riding and siting-in. HENRY: I think that the songs for the civil rights influenced the
rights too a point were it was a very important part in the
civil rights movement. Henry Soren
