New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Exhibit on Music Vs. Politics

The new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exhibit, “Louder than Words,” explores the space where music intersects with politics. The Hall describes it like this: “[The exhibit] will showcase the intersection between rock and politics” and “explore how artists exercise their First Amendment rights, challenge assumptions and beliefs, stimulate thought and effect change.”
