Social Science/History “ Michael, Row the Boat Ashore” or “Kum Ba Yah” and integrate with a lesson about the plight of African Americans and their history.

History “We shall overcome” – could be used to teach a history lesson on Civil rights: Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks and their contributions to the cause.
