Oh Freedom! Songs of the Civil Rights Movement

February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

| $12

I woke up this morning with my mind set on Freedom …

Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me round …

We shall overcome, we shall overcome someday …

The songs of the Civil Rights movement sustained foot soldiers through long nights in prison and tense marches and sit ins. The music acted as a “singing newspaper”–carrying news of the movement across the country, from college campuses to community churches. Today, the music of the movement continues to echo in our ears, teaching us about the past while driving us forward.

Award winning Illinois folksinger, Chris Vallillo will sing and share the pivotal songs that inspired and sustained this landmark movement. Discover the historic and singing roots of the long Civil Rights movement.
