I’m working on a history writing question and need a sample draft to help me study.
Using the information provided, write a 3 page essay examining 2 songs from the 1960s. What are connections between the songs and the civil rights movement? Does the song refer to a specific incident or goal? What message does the musician wish to convey? How effect were the songs in conveying that message? Finish your paper by comparing it to a protest song of the past two decades. You should be able to find some quite easily with a Google search. What are the similarities and differences in the songs’ messages and how they are expressed?
