Singing in the Spirit: Music of the Civil Rights Movement
Sunday 22nd November 7 – 8.45pm
In this program we will explore music of African Americans used during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950-70s in the United States. Singing the Civil Rights songs, and sharing the context out of which they emerged, we will note the challenges, the victories and the ongoing struggle for civil rights, indeed for human rights. It’s a universal theme, and together we will share the uplifting and transformative power of this music as we all move forward.
