Music has gone through an ongoing transformation from its inception creating new genres and styles along the way. From the early days of Bebop and Jazz to modern day Hip Hop and Rap, music has been an outlet for artists and listeners to connect with each other. Although many critical theorists argue the criteria for what art is, others also have elaborated on the ability to produce art for the masses. Prior to mass production in order to obtain art, such as music, one had to be an elite member of society. With society’s technological advancement one may enjoy music literally at the touch of a finger as a member of any social class. As music has been a voice for the masses, its ability to spread awareness and educate has become more prevalent in everyday life. From the Civil Rights and Black Panther movements of the 1960’s to the Black Lives Matter and other contemporary movements that are flourishing music has been a great connector and communicator. Music has allowed society to expose and resist systems of oppressions such as: racism, sexism, discrimination, capitalism, and countless other forms of oppressions that disenfranchise members of society.
