The Music Of The Civil Rights Movement

Learn more about the history of the civil rights movement through music. Join the GRAMMY Museum as we celebrate songs of protest and sounds of freedom with Music Of The Civil Rights Movement. The program, created by the Museum's Education staff and introduced at the White House in February 2010, touches on the climate of the nation leading up to and during the civil rights movement. The program will also showcase both the political and musical leaders who helped change history. Students will also explore how music was used to rally a nation and inspire a fight for freedom.
