SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION
tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music -the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. The film features new performances of the freedom songs by top artists, as well as a vibrant blend of heart-wrenching interviews, dramatic images, and archival footage. The music enabled blacks to sing words they could not say, and it was crucial in helping the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. This award winning nominated film captures the infectious energy of the songs as it swept people up and empowered them to fight for their rights.
