FREEDOM SONGS:
MUSIC OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
MONDAY, AUGUST 22, 8 PM

For a brief moment in time, a few daring, innovative musicians stood at the crossroads of a revolution in music and culture. Across one of the most turbulent periods in American history — from the early civil rights era to Watergate — they brought music, medium and message together as never before, composing a soundtrack perfectly tuned to the tempo and pulse of its time. From Billie Holiday to Mahalia Jackson and Aretha Franklin, and from Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to Gil Scott-Heron, Freedom Songs documents how a few daring musical innovators stood at the vortex of two revolutions — one cultural, the other musical — and forever changed America and the world.
