This exciting workshop explores the power of music in advancing the major civil rights and social justice issues of the past century in the United States. Participants will be invited to lift their voices and join in a traditional sing-along, reminiscent of the way activists and organizers spread their messages through song: You can threaten me, you can beat me, you can jail me, but you cannot make me stop singing.

Sometimes the longer you attempt to define a style of music the more it eludes you. And so it goes with Ellis, Michael, Muxlow, & McNeil. They are one of the best examples in Southern Michigan of the timeless magic created by a blend of tight harmonies, strings and wood. There is a comfortable groove among these three established by a long musical marriage. Their songwriting is fresh and straightforward. The trio dips from the waters of many genres and eras of song. The event with EM&M will leave you remembering, smiling, thinking, and humming.

Learning Objectives:
1. Explore the history or music in advocacy movements
2. Understand the impact music can have in uniting groups
3. Explore how music changed over time in relation to civil rights

Presenters: Catherine Ellis, Bud Michael, and Alma Muxlowmusicians.
