It's Been Said All Along: Voices of Rage, Hope and Empowerment


In every generation, musicians have responded in song and action to promote social justice and equality. What the world is seeing today, as injustices are called out and protesters are finding their voices, is not new. And neither are the musical responses - words and music and passion converging to create something much bigger that cuts deep into the rage, gives hope and radiates empowerment.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s virtual exhibition, which you can access here, invites you to listen and amplify. Divided into three sections, Voices of Rage, Hope & Empowerment mirrors the museum's physical exhibition, and allows visitors to go deeper into the stories, artifacts and music that promote real change.

The following materials are either directly related to the exhibit or reflect its message. Additionally, you can access the Rock Hall EDU collection of digital learning resources and activities related to this exhibit here.
