Concert: Power of the Protest Song
Dickinson Memorial Library (115 Main St, Northfield, MA 01360, Northfield MA)
Pamela Means presents The Power of The Protest Song: Our Shared History & Present Day. Part-performance and mini-presentation, this family-friendly public event will explore the origin stories and lineages of protest songs, how their meanings and effects continue to transform through time and space, and how they have inspired--and continue to inspire--movements and cultural shifts within the realms of racial and social justice. In addition, Pamela will also share her own experiences with becoming an artist and using her voice. A curated assortment of original songs and select, recognizable covers will be integrated into the presentation as a powerful demonstration of how grounding, unifying, and mobilizing protest songs can be.
AT THE NORTHFIELD GOLF CLUB (31 Holton St.) under the Beech House tent.
