"How I Got Over" Song by Clara Ward Published 1951 Released 1951 Writer Clara Ward Cover versions Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Blind Boys of Alabama, The Caravans How I Got Over is a Gospel hymn composed and published in 1951 by Clara Ward (1924-1973).

Inspirations According to her sister, Willa Ward,the inspiration for this song was an experience Clara Ward, Willa, their mother, Gertrude, and members of their singing group had traveling in the racially segregated South in 1951. En route to Atlanta, Georgia, they were besieged by a group of white men. The men were enraged that Black women were riding in a luxury vehicle (a Cadillac), and surrounded their car and terrorized them with racist taunts. The women were rescued when, in a burst of inspiration, Gertrude Ward feigned demonic possession, spewing curses and incantations at the men, who fled.[1] References ^ Ward-Royster, Willa, "How I Got Over: Clara Ward and the World-Famous Ward Singers", Temple University Press, 1997, paper ISBN 1-56639-490-2, pp. 102-104.
