Pamela Means

Pamela Means presented The Power of the Protest Song: Our Shared History & Present Day. This family-friendly concert explored the origin stories and lineages of protest songs, how their meanings and effects continue to transform through time and space, and how they have inspired–and continue to inspire–movements and cultural shifts within the realms of racial and social justice. In addition, Pamela shared her experiences with becoming an artist and using her voice. A curated assortment of original songs and select, recognizable covers was integrated into the presentation as a powerful demonstration of how grounding, unifying, and mobilizing protest songs can be. This program was supported in part by a grant from Wendell Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
