Rock x CPL: Fight the Power

The Rock Hall and Cleveland Public Library have begun their collaborative programming, Rock X CPL, Powered by PNC, throughout Cleveland.

Rock Hall education staff worked with CPL to determine the kind of programming that would be beneficial for their audiences. The Rock Hall team then designed a program about the power music has to help ignite social change. In November CPL brought 30 of their programming staff to the Rock Hall for half day training on the Rock Hall’s teaching philosophies and techniques and to learn the program they will now be able to offer to their local audiences. Rock x CPL: Fight the Power is currently being offered throughout the city, with the following locations offering the program in February.

About the Program

A powerful soundtrack reflects, drives and defines the fight for rights and respect. Music has always been an important part of social movements, protests, and marches. Youth will explore the beats that fueled change in the past and the music that’s making a change today.
