Les 211 chantent pour nous – Blowin’ in the wind

Les 211 chantent pour nous.

A l’occasion d’une séquence axée sur la figure icônique de Martin Luther King et son discours “I Have a Dream”, les élèves ont travaillé sur son combat pour défendre la cause noire et les libertés/la liberté.

En illustration, ils ont étudié, en CO, une Protest Song de Bob Dylan “Blowin’ in the wind”.
Enthousiasmés, les élèves ont souhaité la chanter a capella.

Blowin’ in the Wind
Bob Dylan

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
How many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
How many times must a man look up
Before he really sees the sky
How many ears must one person have
Before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
