Behind every movement is a soundtrack that mobilizes change and inspires the leaders for generations to come. Soul Science Lab’s Soundtrack ‘63 is a live, multimedia musical performance about the African-American experience in America. It connects generations through immersive video of pivotal highlights prior to, during and post- Civil Rights Movement along with spirituals, protest songs, hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul and popular 20th century music performed by an 18-piece orchestra and a soul stirring vocal ensemble. This Concert for Kids includes curated excerpts of the full Soundtrack ’63 performance and poignant commentary from creators Chen Lo and Asante Amin on why facing this history is important now more than ever.
