Music and Social Revolution: Transforming the American Spirit

Thursday, August 13 @ 6:30 pm via Zoom

Music and social revolution often go hand-in-hand. Protest music in the United States dates back to at least the eighteenth century and colonial period where times of oppression and social unease was often translated into song. Marguerite Mullée, a well-known local conductor, singer, and lecturer will lead a presentation on protest music in recent history. In this lecture, we will examine the association between folk music and social activism, beginning in the early 1900’s and continuing into the 1970’s. Workers’ rights, civil rights, anti-war protests, women’s rights – all these movements had their own music that united the brave men and women who risked their livelihoods (and even violence) to bring about a more equal and fair society. Exploring our past history of protests and demands for social change can make us more aware of the challenges that still face us as we continue to strive for equality for all.
