Different forms of expression in music and art can serve as powerful tools of dissent — weakening the established order. Social movements of our time have been inspired by great leaders and orators, but also by the anonymous voices of the Selma Freedom choir, the puppetry of World Bank protestors, and the rhymes of Urban teenagers. On this program, we take a look at the role art plays in resistance. We’ll hear from musicians, actors, and poets, who speak to the issues of justice through the language of art.
