The Soundtrack of Civil Rights

Watch video of the most recent presentation in the Food for Thought lunchtime series which took place on April 21. In partnership with the National Museum of African American Music and Tennessee Performing Arts Center, Vanderbilt presents a two-part Food for Thought series entitled The Soundtrack of Civil Rights. Panel discussions will explore how music has played a vital role in both The Civil Rights Movement and today’s movements from spirituals to popular music. The series included Vanderbilt professors, Nashville community leaders, Civil Rights activists and local artists.

Food for Thought is a community lunchtime program.
