CIVIL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
Sing, Think and Let’s Go!
Unfortunately racial disparities stills persist around the world and it is very important to spread around the world the importance to combat racism and to raise awareness of the importance of the struggle for equality of civil rights.
Transforming peoples feelings of anger, sadness and hopelessness into concrete actions that can make the world more equitable is a vital teaching opportunity that we develop through making music.
This program consists to combat racism around the world and also to honor American activists who fought for civil rights. This project consists to make recordings of songs and video clips talking about the activists from United States and their important stories, in 3 different languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese).
Through the songs, we also can teach people about citizenship and that there is something you can do when faced with injustice. This project also brings opportunities for people to think critically, to care about activism and to talk with others about the topic, inciting quick and possible effective actions of change in the communities around the world.
