Listen to protestors sing ”We Shall Not Be Moved” from the 1965 album “Freedom Songs: Selma, Alabama”. James Fowler, the Alabama State Trooper who fatally shot voting-rights protestor Jimmie Lee Jackson in 1965, was sentenced to a 6 month prison sentence yesterday. The shooting prompted the historic protest marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama (including the “Bloody Sunday” march) and helped spur congress to pass the National Voting Rights Act of 1965.
The Smithsonian Folkways collection contains two albums documenting these historic events. “Freedom Songs: Selma, Alabama”, features songs sung by protesters and was recorded by Carl Benkert, one of the night watchmen during the marches. Mr. Benkert passed away last week. The other, “WNEW’s Story of Selma”, is a radio broadcast documentary that features Pete Seeger, Len Chandler, and the Freedom Voices recalling their experiences at the march and singing freedom songs.
