We're excited to feature a small selection of songs from We Stood Up: Reflections on the Civil Rights Movement. The songs we selected highlight the importance of love, the value of education, and lyrics to inspire children to believe they can achieve great things in their own lives. 

For ideas on honoring social struggle with young children see this excerpt from Anti-Bias Education for Young Children and Ourselves by Louise Derman-Sparks and Julie Olson Edwards.  

The full collection of songs from We Stood Up and an accompanying guide for teachers, intended for teachers of children grades 3 and up, is available to teachers and libraries for free download!
