The Soul of the Movement: We're Gonna Make It!

Little Milton - We're Gonna Make It

Today's selection inadvertently made its way into the soundtrack of the movement. "We're Gonna Make It" was intended to be a song about love and fidelity in a romantic sense ("I got your love and you know you've got mine"), but the song's message of optimism in the face of adversity struck a chord with the larger struggle that was going on. With a lyric like "togetherness brings peace of mind / we can't stay down all the time," how could it not reach out to the movement?
