Let Freedom Sing

Music of the Civil Rights Movement

A collection of music called Let Freedom Sing: The Music Of The Civil Rights Movement chronicles how historical events shaped the songs that were written, including music that commemorated the Montgomery bus boycott and lyrics that reflected on the unequal treatment of black soldiers during World War II.

Alyne Ellis has the music, and the background on the collection, in this report.
