"Movies, Music & Spirit"

The Southern Roots of An American Revolution:  1945-1960


A series of six classes with Bob Bahr to examine and discuss the influence of film, popular music and American religious thought in the years following World War II during the late 1940s and 1950s.


This influential period in American culture and thought, most of it inspired by creative and religious figures from the American south, helped to lay the groundwork for the civil rights movement and the changes in thinking about the role of women in American society.


Through the abundant use of filmed documentary material and archived performances we'll look at the work and influence of suce diverse creative figures as playwright Tennessee Williams, film director Elia Kazan, producer Samuel Goldwyn, pop singers Ray Charles, Elvis Presley and Sam Cooke and religious leaders such as Reinhold Neiguhr, Martin Luther King, Jr. and The Temple's own Rabbi Jacob Rothschild and his work in the Atlanta community during the 1950s.
