CNN will present a special advance screening of its new series, “Soundtracks: Songs That Defined History,” at the Center for Civil and Human Rights on Tuesday, April 18. The screening of the first episode, “The Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.,” will be followed by a panel discussion with musical artists and a civil rights icon.
The new eight-part, hour-long CNN Original Series from executive producers Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia (Seven Bucks Productions) and Emmy and Peabody Award winners Maro Chermayeff and Jeff Dupre (Show of Force), explores the music tied to pivotal moments in history. From the March on Washington to the riots at Stonewall – every episode will illuminate how music has played an integral role in celebrating, criticizing, and amplifying these seismic events in our collective history.
