During 2020, we shared a music blog of protest songs, with a different focus each month. Songs of Protest: 12 Months of Music that Matters focused on protest songs with different themes or causes, or that have inspired particular people. In the course of this project, we may have omitted songs that others think are obvious selections. But, we limited ourselves to 10 primary songs a month, with a playlist containing more songs.
These songs are not artifacts—they still live and breathe because they are still relevant today. We need them as much today as we ever have. Please stay in touch and let us know your thoughts.
