Let's Keep the Dream Alive is Patsy Ford Simms' tribute to the ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The five tuneful and memorable songs (one of which incorporates the Civil Rights movement s anthem "We Shall Overcome") are tied together by rhymed narration divided into fifteen speeches, with one final speech for all Speakers. The narration could be assigned to one to fifteen students, or perhaps be performed by a school or community personality for a special celebration of Dr. King's birthday, Brotherhood Week, or in recognition of Black History Month. This presentation could be done by one class or by several, with each class presenting a song and then all joining forces for the final number. Most of the songs are for unison voices with some divisi which could be considered optional. The ranges of the songs make them ideal for young voices and any of the songs could be used separately on a choral program. Activity sheets in the back of this publication reinforce its use as an excellent learning tool. With its many options for performance and teaching, Let's Keep the Dream Alive will be an inspirational addition to your school's music library.
