Billboard Award-winning artist Chris Vallillo returns to the museum to perform "OH FREEDOM! Songs of the Civil Rights Movement."

The story of the Civil Rights Movement has been described as one of the greatest singing movements that this country has ever experienced. With liner notes that tell the story of the movement and the history of the songs, Chris Vallillo performs some of the pivotal songs that inspired and sustained this landmark movement.

Joining us will be University of St. Francis Professor Cathy Schultz as she discusses clips from the documentary "Eyes on the Prize."
