PERSPECTIVES: Music as an Agent of Change

For social activists, music is an anthem for change.


Most of us think about music as a form of entertainment. It’s that and more. For social activists, music can inspire, stimulate, educate, galvanize/connect people, celebrate, agitate, truth-tell, and offer so much more. In this YouTube video, Paul Babladelis and Jennifer Hudson-Prenkert join Frank Fear to discuss music as an agent of change.¬†They illustrate their discussion with four of Paul’s performances:

-MY OWN TWO HANDS (written by Ben Harper), and three songs that Paul composed:

-WHAT THEY DO BEST

-WHEN WE GONNA’ WAKE UP? and

-THE NOT SO PURE MICHIGAN BLUES.
