Songs played a vital role in the Civil Rights Movement as an inspirational rallying point and as a way to spread the message of equality and justice. Intermixed with pivotal songs that inspired the movement, Illinois folksinger Chris Vallillo presents first-hand accounts of the historic struggle and discusses the impact of music on this important social cause in our nation’s history.
