We Shall Overcome Foundation

                                                  ABOUT US

The primary objective of the  We Shall Overcome Foundation  is to answer prayers and make manifest Gods love by providing food, water, clothing, hygiene products, medical care, knowledge, advocacy, education and the word of GOD--in the name of GOD--to the poor, needy, oppressed and marginalized people of the world.


A seven-member Board of Directors governs the activities of the foundation and provides leadership for the organization's fundraising efforts. The board membership consists of professionals in the fields of Education, Nursing, Nutrition, Sociology, Psychology, Theology, Finance, Law and Construction. All board members volunteer their time and serve without compensation.



Here in the U.S., our Brother and Sisterhood of Minority Tradesmen is actively working to train youth and ex-offenders in the construction trades. We believe that by doing so, our young people can re-claim the financial and cultural stability denied them for centuries.


Through an historic lawsuit filed in April of 2016, the We ShallOvercome Foundation is presently seeking to return the iconic global civil rights anthem, "We Shall Overcome" to the public domain so the world may access its divine message of hope and justice without restriction. This anthem was born of the African American church and should be sung freely and used by all people of the world without cost or restriction. 


No country on Earth has ever meaningfully atoned for the unconscionable enslavement Africans. In keeping with the divine promise of, We Shall Overcome",, we are proposing historic legislative relief and support services to African American men, women and children in their struggle to achieve success and equality of education and employment in the US.  This is much more than "Reparations". (See "U.S. African American Restoration Act").


Elsewhere, we are engaged in hands-on humanitarian activities in Brazil (See "Arms of God ~ Brazil"). Among other things, the foundation provides food, clothing, medicinal items, health services, and construction services to needy children, orphanages and child care facilities in the North-East state of  Bahia, Brazil. We send inner city American youth to Brazil to meet these orphans, learn about their struggles, and create meaningful relationships, while learning the Afro-Brazilian culture and language.
