From the moment rock and roll hit the airwaves, it has played a crucial role in politics and social movements around the world. The library and archival materials featured in this research guide explore the power of rock to change attitudes about patriotism, peace, equality and freedom. How do artists exercise their First Amendment rights? How do they challenge assumptions and beliefs? How does their work stimulate thought and effect change? These materials and more were represented in the Rock Hall's 2016-2017 collaborative exhibit with the Newseum, Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics.
