About this event

The National Portrait Gallery and the DC Public Library would like to invite you to a robust conversation about gender, social movements, and protest music. Join us as we analyze a portrait of human rights activist and musical artist Odetta and discuss the related Smithsonian Folkways Recording, "Voices of the Civil Rights Movement: Black American Freedom Songs 1960-1966" by various artists.

DC Public Library has streaming availability of "Voices of the Civil Rights Movement: Black American Freedom Songs 1960-1966" through their subscription of Alexander Street Press where Voices of the Civil Rights Movement is linked. Patrons can access these resources with a DC Public Library card. For those without a DCPL library card, selections from the compilation are available through the Smithsonian Folkways YouTube channel.
