Vanderbilt Lunch N Learn Series says
In partnership with the Tennessee Performing Arts Center and Vanderbilt University, we present a two-part Food for Thought series entitled The Soundtrack of Civil Rights. Panel discussions will explore how music has played a vital role in The Civil Rights Movement from spirituals to popular music. The series will include Vanderbilt professors, Nashville community leaders, Civil Rights activists and local artists.

Music has a unique way of inspiring, healing, mobilizing and giving a voice to people during times of struggle. Join us for lunch and a discussion on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at War Memorial Auditorium from 11:30am-1pm. The panel moderated by Dr. Dennis Dickerson, includes special guests Freedom Rider Dr. Ernest “Rip” Patton, Dr. Gloria McKissack, who participated in the Nashville sit-ins, and Eric Dozier, founder of the Young People’s Freedom Song Initiative. Jazz artist Connie Florence will perform music heard throughout the Civil Rights Movement.

This is a free and open to the public event by reservation only. Please reserve your space TODAY in order to receive complimentary lunch. All are welcome to bring your own lunch as well. Donations will be accepted at the door and proceeds will benefit the NMAAM.
