The marriage of music and social change didn't originate with the movements for civil rights and Black Power in the 1950s and 1960s, but never before and never again was the relationship between the two so dynamic. Author Denise Sullivan presents the voices of musician-activists from this pivotal era and the artists who followed in their footsteps to become the force behind contemporary liberation music. Joining authentic voices such as Yoko One, Richie Havens, and Buffy Sainte-Marie with narrative, Keep on Pushing covers more than fifty years of fighting oppression through song, defines the soundtrack of revolution, and the price the artists paid to create it.
This event will feature performances by: Buddy Zapata, Jesus Abril (AKA Politik), Cindy Lee Berryhill, Lisa Saunders, and Peter Case.
This discussion is free and open to the public.
