Let Freedom Sing

Whether it was blues, folk, gospel, or R&B, the civil rights movement drew strength, focus, and power through music. Let Freedom Sing (dir. Jon Goodman, 2009) is a formidable chronicle of the individuals who cried out, in song, against inequality, racism, poverty, and war. With never-before-seen footage and affecting accounts from the Mississippi Freedom Riders, who sang every day as they risked life and limb, to GRAMMY-winning artists who continue to pen inspired lyrics capable of moving a nation, this documentary explores the civil rights movement and its continuing impact on music, politics, and culture.

Please note: The previously scheduled “Community Sing” has been replaced by a short film performance of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” featuring Hudson community members led by Anneice Cousin and accompanied by David Sytkowski.

FREE, reservations recommended.
