Local music expert Jon VanderPloeg will discuss the music of the 1960s Civil Rights era that served as the background music for the movement.

His powerful images and stirring music will give you a sense of what it was like on the protest lines. Presented in partnership by Grand Rapids African American Museum & Archives.
