African American Music

The music that surrounds several moments and movements in racial struggle ends up offering a handbook into that struggle. In this paper of about 4 pages, discuss the role of music from Negro Spirituals to Beyonc that provide the backdrop to the Civil Rights Movement(s). 

Some aspects to consider to help you write this paper: 1. The Context: This can include a the time line you are using for Civil Rights struggle and the genre of music you are looking at more specifically. This can also include information about the artist(s) as an introduction.

2. The Themes 3. Analysis of lyrics (do this in much the same way that you would do an analysis of poetry).  In fact, in your comparison of lyrics you might want to include poetry as a comparison. 4. Comparison/ Contrast 5. State something about the future of the songs and how they will fit into future protest.
