Here is the video I showed in class about the use of music by the Freedom Riders.
Yesterday’s discussion on pop-star activism (and earnestness) since the age of MTV inspired some of you to make connections to other artists you like. Here are some video responses:
Comedian Tim Minchin’s, “F*ck The Poor,” is a biting critique of self-serving attitudes towards charity and the poor. Is it satire or is it genuine?
Heavy Metal artists also had their own version of “We Are the World” in Hear N’ Aid’s “Stars”. The chorus, “We are stars,” conveys a very different sentiment than “We are the world.”
Keep ’em coming guys…
