Miami Presents: She Sang Freedom
Miami alumni and friends are invited to join Dr. Tammy Kernodle for a special presentation: "She Sang Freedom: A Conversation about the role of women musicians in advancing social change in post war America."
This talk explores how women musicians were central in shaping the public rhetoric of selected social movements that emerged out of the political milieu of the late 1950s and 1960s through the act of freedom singing and the creation of freedom or protest songs. Musical voices highlighted through this talk include Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Joan Baez, Mavis Staples and many others.
