Mid-morning I had to go over to the hospital for a meeting and as I stepped outside of the clinic building, I heard and saw a heavyset Black woman singing in a loud voice the famous civil rights song, “We Shall Overcome.” Except she added new, original lyrics. “We shall overcome, we shall overcome and if we don’t, fuck it, fuck y’all.” Over and over again, We shall overcome, we shall overcome and if we don’t, fuck it, fuck y’all.
