City Club of Cleveland Presents: Conference on Free Speech - Free Speech in the Music Industry
Rock and roll and hip hop have thrilled and outraged listeners since the early 1950s. The music has been attacked by parents, broadcasters, politicians, and religious leaders. This panel will explore some key historical moments-the emergence of rock and roll in the mid-1950s, the Parents Music Resource Center's congressional hearings in 1986, and the ongoing battles over the impact of rap and heavy metal on young listeners.
