Liner Notes: Music of The Movement

Reston Community Center, 2310 Colts Neck Rd, Reston, VA 20191

Exploring music inspired by the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and 1960s, this show features inspiring songs of change. From the energizing Ray Charles’ What’d I Say to protest songs like A Change Is Gonna Come and spirituals like This Little Light of Mine, the songs that informed the struggle for universal human rights in America remain powerful and relevant.

Always striving to care for its audience, Liner Notes revisits this turbulent time in our history with authenticity, thoughtfulness and integrity, drawing connections and examining the intersections with adversity that is still prevalent today. What have we learned? What do we still need to learn from the music and the artists who used their art as activism?
