A Change is Gonna Come: Music, Race and the Soul of America, Paperback Book

A Change is Gonna Come: Music, Race and the Soul of America Paperback

Description

A Change is Gonna Come chronicles more than forty years of black music: from the hopeful, angry refrains of the Freedom movement to the slick pop of Motown; from Woodstock and the 'Summer of Love' to Vietnam and the race riots; from disco inferno to the Million Man March.

This is an insightful and riveting study which looks at the place black music occupies in social history, its battle for the desegregation of popular music and its contribution to social change outside the recording studio
