Top Ten Civil Rights Songs

Top Ten Civil Rights Songs | Geography Education |
The civil rights movement has resonated deeply with generations of musicians. .


This link connects you to 10 YouTube clips of important songs that were inspirational in the shaping of the Civil Rights movement.  This is a poignant way to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this coming Monday, but it is also a great archive for potential teaching resources...lessons that use music can have a profound impact.

Music tells our stories and shows a lot about the time in which it was made. This would be amazing to incorporate into the classroom. Teachers could break students up into groups and have them work on individual songs and pull historical inferences from them. Then you could bring the class back together to discuss.  There a lot of great visuals included in these videos.
