    • Battle Cry of Freedom: From Civil War to Civil Rights

      Description:

      Beginning with music from the abolitionist movement and the Underground Railroad, Magpie explores freedom fighters from history, including John Brown, the famed raider of Harper’s Ferry and Harriet Tubman, the great conductor of the Underground Railroad. They continue the story of the struggle for freedom and equality into the 1960s and the present day, connecting the songs used in the Underground Railroad with their use in the sit-ins, freedom rides and other demonstrations organized by those involved in the modern Civil Rights Movement.
