FEATURING T.V. REED – All great social movements for change have been infused with artistic expression. The art of social movements reflect the issues, causes, and impacts with a clarity that speeches and statistics simply cannot. The civil rights movement had song, the black power movement had theatrical style, the feminist movement had poetry, the Chicano movement had murals, the American Indian movement had film.
