The Protest Song
In June, punk scholar and DIY filmmaker Roy Wallace came to NN to lead a talk and workshop #atNN as part of Filip Markiewicz’s CELEBRATION FACTORY. Here is a playlist featuring the songs Roy spoke about for those of you who weren’t able to be there:
The Protest Song – A brief history – a playlist
As long as there has been social injustice in the world, there have been people protesting those injustices. Often, people chant and sing songs to voice their oppression. Protest movements have always been closely linked with music.
– Roy Wallace
Not all of the songs from the talk are on Spotify, such as This Machine Kills Fasists by Woodie Guthrie or Formation by Beyonce.
