African Americans in the transoceanic slave trade sang triumphantly: "We gon' be alright!" My poster shows the catalyzing effects of music in African American movements for equality.  Music has been a powerful force, a potent weapon for both resilience and resistance, for African Americans for the past five hundred years.
