MeMA-Music
Inspiring and Empowering Youth

Remember When Music Served as a Rallying Call For Young People Who Led The Fight For Cultural And Political Change?

Music builds unity. Blues, Jazz, Folk, and Rock have all functioned as strategies to change social policy, fight social injustice, bolster courage, inspire participation, and foster community. Hip Hop has always been about social justice, giving voice to socio-political issues and racial injustice. Many protest songs became masterpieces primarily because they were integral to mass demonstrations for peace and social justice. Learning about our nation’s history through the eyes of poets and songwriters who expressed their anger and frustration through music can help students understand how history shapes people’s lives and the possibility that young people can make a difference in history.
