During the Civil Rights movement, a speaker conveyed the importance of freedom and music helped to amplify the magnitude of the moment. In fact, music played a major role in the movement, during times of protest and was an ingredient used to express the importance of being heard. Whether it was a solo singer or sung together, by those in attendance, the music of the movement kept hope alive.We navigated and discussed the soundtrack, voices and cultural impact of those who were at the heart of the movement. Couldn’t make it out? Check out a recap of that night below.
