Face the Music
using roots music to confront racism
American music contains powerful lessons for understanding and addressing systemic oppression in our country. Focusing on the stories of marginalized musicians, each week of this class explores the lessons of a different artist and their music.
Participants take part in guided discussions designed to recognize bias in one’s community and society, as well as effective strategies for confronting issues of race and social justice in personal and professional life.
Participants deepen their knowledge of American musical history alongside new friends and collaborators. This class provides tools to create a more just and compassionate society, and resources to help you continue the work.
Each Face the Music cohort is limited to groups of 8-10 participants, who meet weekly for discussion sessions via Zoom video conference for 8 consecutive weeks.
