Experiments with Truth: Analysis

Protest music isn’t just a folk singer with a guitar

Protest music isn’t just a folk singer with a guitar. There are great protest songs from practically every genre: hip-hop, soul, country, rock — and even classical.

An exhibit at the University of Minnesota’s Wilson and Music Library this month is examining the role protest music has played in many different causes.

As part of the exhibit, Prof. Mark Pedelty is holding a teach-in today. There will be discussion and performances, including one by Pedelty’s band Hypoxic Punks.
