Click to enlarge

This week on the 5 o'clock shadow, we are remembering the legacy of Pete Seeger. We Shall Overcome had its roots as a spiritual, but became an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's. This moving video was released by the Historic Film Archive this week to honor Mr. Seeger. 

 

The Boss shares many of the communitive values that Pete Seeger held and in 2010 he honored Pete Seeger and the legacy of his powerful music by coving the iconic We Shall Overcome in a series of covers that Springsteen labeled The Seeger Sessions.
