The story of Black Music is the story of America

.

No single population has provided bigger influence on American Music than the African American Community. Music, Rhythm and

Culture of Black History!

This program presents American Civil

Rights in an engaging and uplifting manner. The audience will join in singing and clapping along to the many “Freedom Songs” featured in the program. The narration uses simple language and includes brief explanations of unfamiliar terms, such as “segregation,” “boycott” and “NAACP.” Younger elementary school audiences will benefit from classroom preparation in which the history of racial discrimination in America can be discussed. Many children, growing up in an America governed by an African-American President, may need support in order to understand the racially-divided America of past generations.

“A Change Is Gonna Come”  For Black History Month,  SQUEAKY CLEAN presents a multimedia history of the American Civil Rights Movement from 1954 – 1968, including Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges,Martin Luther King, Jr

. and the Freedom Riders.  The reassuring voice of a grandmother explains the major events of the Movement in clear and simple language, accompanied by still photos and video clips.  Suzanne, Glenn and Phil perform many songs associated with the period, including “We Shall Overcome”  “If I Had A Hammer”  “What The World Needs Now” and “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around.”

Key figures and dynamic songs

from the time period are welcomed to the stage with an accessible script that provides a great launching pad for understanding this challenging time in our nation’s past.

An uplifting, inspirational review of a critical period of American history

.
