Head Start: With the Child Development Group of Mississippi

Head Start: With the Child Development Group of Mississippi

This selection of freedom songs, spirituals, and children’s music is a snapshot of the civil rights movement in Mississippi in the mid-1960s, when the nationally funded Head Start program struggled to survive attacks by local politicians and citizens. The Child Development Group’s use of music to inspire learning is audible on this historic collection.
