Music has been used throughout history to unite communities in the face of injustice. From early spirituals to civil rights era freedom songs to jazz and blues recorded at Angola Prison, music serves as its own language, conveying messages that could not be expressed by words alone. Join us for a celebratory evening of music, featuring performances by the Fairfield Four and other Nashville musicians. This program is presented in partnership with the National Museum of African American Music.
