Freedom Songs: The Music of the Civil Rights Movement

Freedom Songs: The Music of the Civil Rights Movement is a tribute to the music of the Civil Rights movement. The iconic music was an essential component of the movement, capturing the vitality and idealism necessary to fuel dangerous marches, sit-ins, picket lines and freedom rides. From Billie Holiday to Mahalia Jackson and Aretha Franklin, from Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to Gil Scott-Heron, the music was inspired by a broad range of styles — from gospel standards and spirituals to blues, jazz, folk and pop.
