Mount Vernon Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, United States

Throughout our history, social movements have relied on music to share their stories and to unite their members. Civil rights – from slavery days to Jim Crow segregation to “I have a dream” to Black Lives Matter. Women’s rights – from the suffragettes to birth control and reproductive rights to equal pay for equal work. The event includes a narrative portion, in pictures and words, of the music and the movements over history. Presented in collaboration with The Ohio State University College of Social Work.
