Pamela Means: Power of the Protest Song at Hawks & Reed
About This Event
Part-performance and part-presentation, this family-friendly public event explores 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 also shares her own experiences with becoming an artist and using her voice. A curated rotating assortment of original songs and select, recognizable covers are integrated into the presentation as a powerful demonstration of how grounding, unifying, and mobilizing protest songs can be.
