Dr. Tammy Kernodle, professor of musicology and pianist/vocalist will take you on a musical tour of black women musicians who used music as a means of documenting and promoting the struggle for equality and social justice in America. Several freedom and protest songs will be experienced through live performance and storytelling of the various historical contexts that range from slavery, to the Civil Rights Movements, to the proliferation of the Black Power movement in the 1970s.
