Join us as we celebrate the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a screening of the film Soundtrack for a Revolution. We can’t wait to share this experience with you, in person. A facilitated dialogue will follow the screening.
Soundtrack for a Revolution tells the story of the American Civil Rights Movement through its powerful music — the freedom songs that protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in police wagons, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. A unique mix of historical documentary and contemporary musical performance, the film features original performances by top artists including John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean, and The Roots; riveting archival footage; and interviews with civil rights foot soldiers and leaders, including Congressman John Lewis, Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond, Andrew Young and dozens more. The film is 96 minutes. Shortlisted for an Oscar in the Documentary Feature category
A facilitated dialogue will follow the film.
