Arts and Culture: Music that Portrays Hardship/Suffering

Music has the power to convey messages, concepts, and feelings. Sixth graders listen to and analyze the cultural and historical context of several spirituals and working songs sung in Africa and also during the slave period in American history. Lyrics and music instructional suggestions are included. A great lesson to integrate into any unit on slavery, the South, or American history.
