Educating about social justice issues through song, theater and art.
Led by our flagship production, Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement: The Power of Song, we have given hundreds of students and professionals opportunity to showcase their talents to audiences of thousands since 2015.
The Power of Song Inc. partners with various youth organizations and schools to give students an opportunity to perform on stage with professional artists who also provide clinics and personal mentoring.
Leaders of our organization, including CEO and artistic director September Penn, speak and perform at events and conferences worldwide. They have presented in California, Florida, Tennessee, Illinois, Missouri and other places domestically, as well as internationally in Kenya, Africa and Tokyo, Japan.
Art and Music
From the organization’s inception, The Power of Song Inc. has included various forms of the arts in its presentations, from music to visual art. The first piece of artwork was a hand-painted mural that is the official step-and-repeat for production, Sounds of the Civil Rights Movement: The Power of Song.
