The musical legacy of the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King, and the uses of music in the Civil Rights Movement, fits well with the conference theme. We are also interested in ways that we can connect Coretta Scott King's graduation from Boston's New England Conservatory of Music with a Mus.B in voice, and her presence in Boston resulting in her union with Martin Luther King. Coretta King and others (like Bernice Johnson Reagon and the SNCC Singers) used music to fund the Civil Rights Movement (Coretta gave concerts to raise money for the SCLC). Papers or pre-arranged panels will be considered.
