In the second part of this special dedicated to jazz and civil rights [for the first part click here] we look into music inspired by the bloody events that marked the advancement of the civil rights movement, the names of the victims of ongoing brutality. The playlist included tunes which incorporate the words or the cadence of Martin Luther King, are introduced by Jesse Jackson or celebrate Malcolm X, as well as songs that were played to draw attention to and support the cause.
Enjoy the show!
