Celebrate Juneteenth: “Respect: Soul Music and the Civil Rights Movement”
Kick off the Juneteenth Celebration weekend with John Capouya in learning about the inspiring soul artists who assisted in the Civil Rights Movement.
Gospel and folk music were important in the struggle for equality, but Soul music also inspired and united Americans. Soul artists like Aretha Franklin and Florida’s own Sam and Dave and Timmy Thomas supported Dr. Martin Luther King directly, and their music and messages, along with Sam Cooke and Curtis Mayfield, became anthems of the movement.
John Capouya, author of the award-winning book Florida Soul, tells this important story in words, images, and stirring soul music from the 1960s and 1970s.
