Music has always advanced the agenda of change. While rock ’n’ roll artists did not invent the concept of protest music, artists like Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran and Bob Dylan helped shape the changing of America in the last half of the 20th century. Chuck Berry injected his early,classic rock ’n’ roll songs with sly social commentary and Bob Dylan crafted anthems that endured — songs as relevant in 2021 as they were in the early ‘60s. Join William McKeen, Boston University professor and American author of “Rock and Roll is Here to Stay,” in this seminar as he shares how rock ‘n’ roll music shaped society and how the genre is still impacting protesting in America.
This program is presented by William McKeen and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
