We Shall Overcome Foundation


“FREE ‘WE SHALL OVERCOME'” is a brief video created to raise the necessary funds to complete the powerful feature film, "GRAND THEFT GOSPEL: WE SHALL OVERCOME".

The US Library of Congress has named, We Shall Overcome;

 "The Most Powerful Song of the Twentieth Century"

On January 26th, 2018, NY Federal Judge, Denise Cote signed an order forever restoring, We Shall Overcome to the public domain. 

A true "David and Goliath" story, based on his book; 

"WE SHALL OVERCOME: Sacred Song on the Devil's Tongue"

this extraordinary film follows the unexpected journey of writer/director, Isaias Gamboa in real time as he seeks to learn the true origins of We Shall Overcome - an extraordinary expedition which ultimately leads to the liberation of the most powerful freedom and protest anthem the world has ever known.  

Currently entering post-production, this film corrects the corrupted historical record with newly mined evidence, documentation and testimony. Powerful footage includes more than 20 interviews with Grammy winning recording artists, experts and and eye-witnesses to the shocking truth about the iconic freedom song and the wolves in sheep's clothing, who claimed to be its protectors.
