Description of Boycott by Various Artists
"Boycott," a film depicting the civil rights movement, begins with the story of Rosa Park’s courageous act of refusing to give up her seat in the "whites only" section of a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama in December of 1955. It was one of the most turbulent and pivotal times in the short history of the United States of America and the film brings this story again into the limelight.
The companion soundtrack to "Boycott" is an eclectic mix of gospel, soul, funk and R&B that captures the range of feelings and emotions that were exploding during this era. From musical legends such as Nat King Cole, Stevie Wonder and Dizzy Gilliespe to relatively new artists like Lamar Campbell and Brent Jones, this is the kind of album that could stand on its own, even if the film didn’t exist. A huge staff of talented people put this soundtrack together using newly-recorded tracks as well as vintage material that goes back to the 1930s.
