The art of the protest song is tracked throughout music history, while an extended conversation with singer-songwriter and activist MILCK anchors our journey.
Following our history lesson, MILCK explains the origin story behind eventual Women’s March anthem, “Quiet.” She then ponders the role of art in mobilization, and she details her Chinese-American background and perspective. In January 2019, NPR looked back on “Quiet” and its impact on the march, saying that it both “caught fire overnight,” as discussed here, and is a song that’s “still ringing” out for those who connect with its message.
