Soundtrack For A Revolution: American Experience

Season 23, Episode 1 of 1

SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music -- the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. The music enabled African-Americans to sing words they could not say and it was crucial in helping protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs swept people up and empowered them to fight for their rights. This documentary is a blend of heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic images and contemporary performances by top artists, including John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean and The Roots.
