Sam Cooke “A Change is Going to Come”

This song was one of the most important songs for the Civil Rights Movement. This song spoke to the lives of many who fought, protested, who were beaten,jailed, and killed because they believed a change was going to come. I remember hearing this song played in my house and it was always moving to hear it because the lyrics spoke to me. When Greil Marcus mentioned that Bob Dylan played this song in remembrance of Cooke I was touched. Sam Cooke was a pioneer for the African American community. I hope and believe that change would continue to come to America
