Event Details

EVERYBODY SING FREEDOM: MUSIC AND CIVIL RIGHTS
Presented by: The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Led by Kim and Reggie Harris, singers and songwriters from New York
The music of African Americans directly influenced the quest for freedom during the Civil Rights Movement. By adapting spirituals, songs of faith, work songs, and popular songs heard on the radio, the leaders of the Movement were able to mobilize communities to protest and organize in their effort to inspire social change. In this interactive workshop, explore the development of these songs of struggle, the messages they convey, and gain a deeper understanding of this pivotal period in history. In addition, discover ways to help students update traditional songs by composing verses that address topics of current interest.
