Pamela Means presents The Power of the Protest Song: Our Shared History and Present Day

Saturday, October 29th, 2022 - 7:30PM

Part-performance and part-presentation, this family-friendly public event explores the origin stories and lineages of protest songs, how their meanings and effects continue to transform through time and space, and how they have inspired—and continue to inspire—movements and cultural shifts within the realms of racial and social justice.

In addition, Pamela also shares her own experiences with becoming an artist and using her voice. A curated rotating assortment of original songs and select, recognizable covers are integrated into the presentation as a powerful demonstration of how grounding, unifying, and mobilizing protest songs can be.

The concert will be held in the Sanctuary at First Parish Church on Saturday, Oct. 29. Doors open at 7 PM and the concert begins at 7:30. Masks are optional. Admission is free and donations are welcome.

There will be a post-show Q&A.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Stow Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by  the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
