A collective biography about five musicians and groups at the height of their careers, whose passion and talent influenced the Civil Rights Movement. Part of a new series on the Civil Rights Era for ages 12 to 15 from Nomad Press. Singing for Equality: Musicians of the Civil Rights Era introduces readers aged 12 to 15 to the history of the Civil Rights Movement and explores the vital role that music played in the tumultuous period of American history of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s. As protests, demonstrations, rallies, and new laws characterized the Civil Rights Movement and brought about change to the socially unjust systems of racial and gender oppression, music provided a soundtrack. In this book, hands-on projects and research activities alongside essential questions, links to online resources, and text-to-world connections promote a profound understanding of history and offer opportunities for social-emotional learning.
