The story of the American civil rights movement is told through its powerful music- the songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. These iconic songs evolved from slave chants, the labor movement, and especially the black church. The music enabled blacks to sing words they could not say, and was crucial in helping the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. New performances of the traditional freedom songs by contemporary artists include John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean, and The Roots. This celebration of the vitality of the music vibrantly blends heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic images, and thrilling contemporary performances- a combination of significance, energy, and power.
