Also, catch inspiration performances by the New Life Tabernacle Mass Choir and Kenny Muhammad the Human Orchestra and, throughout the day, free screenings of Soundtrack for a Revolution, the acclaimed documentary about the American civil rights movement, including songs by the Roots, TV on the Radio, and John Legend.
