Are you looking for recent songs or it does not really matter?
 
Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday (a beautiful song but make sure your students are old enough, if you have very sensitive students, do not study this song) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strange_Fruit)
 
In the Ghetto - Elvis Presley (also a very beautiful song) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Ghetto)
 
Anything is Possible (Black History Rap): http://www.timeforkids.com/news/anything-possible/5406
 
You will find videos about these songs on YouTube.
 
Death Penalty Songs:
 
 
Suggestion: Type ī[theme] song(s) ī in the Google Search bar and you will find other ideas! Wink

Hi,
Besides the very useful suggestions, I searched "youtube" writing your needed topics, I found some nice songs:
"injustice songs   - there is a song called "Silent tears"
Immigrant song - there īs at least one by Led Zeppelin
Blacks history:  song called  "Ebony and ivory " by Paul MacCartney
There īs also a song by Black Eyed Peas called "Union" related to intolerance (my first download here)
Good luck!
