Music activates people in ways that simple speech/protesting cannot. This session makes a space for learning and creating movement songs with a focus on the Poor People’s Campaign. First, we`ll share songs, originals and remixes). Those who want to write or compose will do that next. We`ll end with different people practicing leading songs to sustain our movements! Participants should leave the workshop with new songs learned/written and better prepared to lead a group in song. Instruments welcome.
