Students will engage in the study of music and lyrics related to a social justice or human rights cause (i.e. black lives matter, civil rights music, or protest music) and analyze the messages relayed through these songs. Participants will work in groups to collaboratively decide on a relevant cause, choose a known melody, and write new lyrics for that melody to communicate their message. Through active participation attendees will answer this driving question: How can music communicate a message that is important to a group of people? Why is this vehicle so effective?
