Soundtrack for a Revolution synopsis

Bill Guttentag's documentary examines the importance of music during the U.S. civil rights movement that took place during the 1950s and '60s. The various sit-ins and public demonstrations of the era incorporated protest songs, folk tunes and spirituals, music that was a crucial part of the movement. Guttentag uses archival footage and interviews to connect specific songs (covered by artists including the Roots and John Legend) to specific events, such as the Montgomery bus boycott.
