Azizi Origins: Gospel song 'The Welcome Table' (53* d) RE: Origins: Gospel song 'The Welcome Table' 11 Jun 12


Request for information from an archivist for the PBS historical documentary series History Detectives.

[I received this request via email to my website Cocojams.com.]

"We are currently working on an investigation involving what we believe to be the signage that hung above the doors of the Liberty St. Woolworth lunch counter in WInston-Salem North Carolina. Winston-Salem became the first NC city to desegregate its lunch counters (May, 1960).

Your website provides some great information about Civil Rights and Freedom Songs, and I am particularly interested in obtaining a recorded version of the song, "I'm Gonna Sit at the Welcome Table," featuring the Woolworth-specific lyrics ("I'm Gonna Sit at the Woolworth Counter"). If you have an idea as to the source for a recorded version, I would be most grateful to know (as the song would work great for our piece)"...

If you have any information on this request, please post it here or directly contact ashley.levine at liontv dot us.

Thanks!

Azizi Powell
