Sam's Salon: Music, Song and the Civil Rights Movement

Pete Seeger and his music played a central role in the Civil Rights Movement. Seeger inspired thousands to sing with him on his lifelong quest for freedom and justice. Join Artistic Director Sam Woodhouse for a fascinating history lesson about the movement. Hear live and recorded music that has inspired Americans to march together for a better world. Woodhouse’s guests are USD Professor of Political History Virginia Lewis and recording artist B. Slade, the star of the REP’s production of the musical The Who’s Tommy and a former minister of music for a local African American congregation.
