I have to give a seminar/lecture about Reconstruction and Black Code laws in the 1870s soon... and I was trying to think of some modern(ish) music to have playing while people are entering the auditorium in which I'll be presenting. The music needs to be sorta hip, but still be about African American conflict/discrimination problems.
Right now I'm looking at "Pray," by Jay-Z... but I'm not sure it has the right tone for a discussion/presentation about post-Civil War society in the South. Heh... The song doesn't need to be a show-stopper; it's basically background music that will be playing while everyone enters the room.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions for other songs, please throw 'em at me!
