    We have checked your website, it seems that you have added ShareThis Span tag code manually to your site along with the ShareThis Plugin implementation.

    The other Span tags are -

    <span class='st_facebook_hcount' st_title='Wade In The Water / A Negro Spirituals Folk Song' st_url='http://www.calvinearl.com/wade-in-the-water-a-negro-spirituals-folk-song/'></span>
    <span class='st_twitter_hcount' st_title='Wade In The Water / A Negro Spirituals Folk Song' st_url='http://www.calvinearl.com/wade-in-the-water-a-negro-spirituals-folk-song/'></span>
    <span class='st_pinterest_hcount' st_title='Wade In The Water / A Negro Spirituals Folk Song' st_url='http://www.calvinearl.com/wade-in-the-water-a-negro-spirituals-folk-song/'></span>
    <span class='st_plusone_hcount' st_title='Wade In The Water / A Negro Spirituals Folk Song' st_url='http://www.calvinearl.com/wade-in-the-water-a-negro-spirituals-folk-song/'></span>

    Also, you have specified the same Title in the HEAD section of your site page -
    <title> Wade In The Water / A Negro Spirituals Folk Song</title>

    Hence it is showing the Title Twice while sharing.

    Please note that Facebook crawls the page to grab the data to be shared.
    We just pass the URL and then Facebook crawls the page and on that we don't have any control.
    You can specify the Title, image, URL or description to be shared using Meta tags only.
    Know more about Meta tags -

    We suggest you to remove the unwanted code from your site page along with the Title which you have specified Twice.
    Hope this helps and clarifies.
