Why were soul music and soul jazz connected so strongly to the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s? Do you believe that the music had an effect on the Movement or did the Movement affect the music? In providing input to the discussion, please direct your responses to the music itself and how it related to the Civil Rights Movement, and avoid making generalized observations about that era. Personal opinions are encouraged as long as you can cite references to support your ideas.
The post should be orginal and well written.
