The
freedom songs,

lifted from the African American spirituals songs,
helped to inspire and transform ordinary
black people and their multiracial allies into a moral and social force, commonly known as the Civil Rights Movement.
This movement, aided by the
freedom songs,
changed the structure and character of American society that may never be equaled in importance. Moreover, the
freedom songs
were a
unifying element in the Civil Rights Movement,
emphatically
reminding people of what they are fighting for, while providing inspiration and
hope.http://kwanzaaguide.com/2010/04/freedom-songs-and-the-civil-rights-movement-2/
