American Civil Rights Protest Music - From "A Change is Gonna Come" to "the Middle of Trump Country"

We'll gather online via Google Meet to listen and discuss the American music, the artists, and their times, that helped define America's civil rights movement in the 1960s and 1970s and the decades that followed. We'll learn and discuss how it evolved into what we still call "protest music" today.

Were they successful?
How do we define "success"?
Did we get any closer to real racial justice as a result?

Each class will cover a decade and include two or three songs/artists. We'll have time for attendees to suggest artists/music they feel are worthy of inclusion as well.
No required reading, but there IS required LISTENING! I will send links to the songs a week or two in advance, and really hope you can give what I've found amazing, compelling, sometimes disturbing musical accomplishment some attention... or at least listen once, preferably without distraction, prior to class.

I do plan to play the music in class, if possible each in its entirety if time permits, so it's all fresh in our minds. So be ready to run your speakers, or bring along your headphones.

These classes are 11.30-12.15 on the following Sundays: 11/7, 11/14, 12/5, 12/12, 1/9/2022, 1/16/2022
