This engaging program will highlight the music of American social movements with a short presentation by Dr. Jeneve Brooks, associate professor of sociology at Troy University – Dothan Campus, and a moving performance by the Ken Thomas Ensemble in WMA’s Main Gallery.

Brooks will trace the historical connections and mobilizing actions of music during the days of abolition, the civil rights movement, and the anti-war movement of the Vietnam War era. Brooks will present a fascinating look at the intersection of culture and politics followed by a poignant performance of various songs associated with the mentioned movements and a moderated Q&A.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.
