We’ll meet IN-PERSON, or ONLINE, if you prefer, to listen and discuss the music, the artists, and their times, that helped define our civil rights movement in the 1960s and 1970s and the decades that followed. We’ll learn and discuss how it evolved into what we still consider “protest music” today.
Were they successful? Are we any closer to real racial justice as a result? How do we define “success”?
Each class will cover a decade and include two or three songs/artists. We’ll have time for attendees to suggest artists/music they feel are worthy of inclusion as well.
