Teacher Offers Civil Rights Music Collection

Hi Susan,

My name is Dave Mort and I'm a History teacher living in England. I
always use music in the classroom to teach, particularly post war American history and especially Bob Dylan. I have written historical novels before but my latest work details the rise of the civil rights movement and anti Vietnam war protests in 50's and 60's America.

To this end I have chosen sixty songs from the period that chart the progress of both and relate the story through them. If you go to my website


you will be able to read the intro.

Fairly soon there will be an interactive jukebox installed where you will be able to hear the 60 tracks and see some pictures.

Your comments would be appreciated.

Regards and respect
Dave Mort
