Out of their Seats, Into the Streets by Scott Hodnett and Amanda Khorramabadi

The Alabama Christian Movement Choir was the heart of the weekly mass meetings that educated and inspired participants in non-violent direct action, such as sit-ins, demonstrations, and boycotts. Choir Director Carlton Reese delivered the soundtrack to Rev. Shuttlesworth's sermons. And the choir continues to this day, with some of the original members still singing.
