GET UP, STAND UP: Fighting for Rights Around the World

Students explore basic human rights as they explore music by black artists. In this human rights lesson, students examine music as a cultural reflection of the justice issues. Students analyze Jamaican roots reggae of the 70s, American freedom music of the Civil Rights Movement in the 60s, and Nigerian pop music style of the 90s and discuss the common themes that apply to human rights struggles.
