This Little Light of Mine is a beautiful spiritual song with roots in African-American culture. It’s often used in general school classrooms as a way to affirm each child’s individuality and value, how they can stand up for who they are and “let their light shine”. The song is also widely used in Sunday schools and religious schools because it makes reference to a few beautiful passages in the Bible that speak to each person’s inner light and connection to the Divine.
Recently the song is also being used in anti-bullying context because it talks about not letting anyone “put your light out”. It’s a great song for starting conversations about tolerance, prejudice, individuality and kindness toward fellow students.
You can find this song on DARIA’s Grammy-nominated CD: Grandchildren's Delight Music CD
