In conjunction with the International Documentary Association and the GRAMMY Foundation®, The GRAMMY Museum is proud to present “Soundtrack for a Revolution.” This exciting, new documentary tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music — the freedom songs protestors sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, in paddy wagons, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. Featuring new performances of freedom songs by John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean, The Roots, and others alongside riveting archival footage and interviews with civil rights leaders, the film demonstrates how music enabled African-Americans to sing words they could not say and empowered them to fight for their rights. A panel discussion with executive producer Danny Glover, filmmakers Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman, producer Dylan Nelson, and music producer Corey Smyth will follow the screening.
