Late period Mavis Staples stands out (and she did it without Rick Rubin)

While the video is a compilation of '60s civil rights era footage and quite powerful, the music is from Mavis's 2007 Ry Cooder-produced album "We'll Never Turn Back" on Anti of civil rights songs. Her 2004 release "Have a Little Faith" on Alligator is also outstanding.
