Sit where you like Rosa Parks....
Be it the protest lyrics of Gil Scott Heron, the beautifully constructed Patrice Holloway number, the hope in Curtis work, or the questions raised by Marvin. The world watched as President Obama was inaugurated with news channels choosing Sam Cooke’s “A change is gonna come” as the music backdrop.Whatever your music bag contains, 90% of it wouldn’t be there without the combination of Soul and the Civil Rights Movement. “Classic Soul” is that period primarily referenced as the 60’s and 70’s. This is the time frame of the American Civil Rights Movement, and the impact of the massive changes going on, are reflected in the music and the culture. Music produced during the civil rights era continues to connect with audiences today because of the timelessness of the lyrics. Although African American artists made the most famous songs related to the movement, musicians of all stripes contributed songs of protest about injustices in America.From this blue eyed soul boy, thank you one and all..
