Message In The Music:
Black Pride and Protest in American Song - Parts 1 & 2

Sidney Howard and Jack Marchbanks have just introduced this hour-long radio documentary entitled, "Message In The Music: Black Pride and Protest in American Song."

The program is a review of the past 100 years of popular music in America and how African Americans have used the powerful medium of commercial recording to protest Jim Crow and institutional racism and to declare their aspirations. On the special, you will hear the voices of W.E.B. DuBois, Claude McKay, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Chuck D. The music starts with "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" and goes all the way to Kanye West's "Diamonds from Sierra Leone."

The special was broadcast on Saturday, January 13, 2007 on WCBE 90.5-FM, Central Ohio's most listened-to NPR Station. Listen to Part 1 of this documentary here, or the full broadcast online at www.wcbe.org.

Narrated by Jack Marchbanks and Sidney Howard
