10/12/2019 - 2/02/2020
The Durham Museum

Omaha, NE 68108
Louder Than Words: Rock, Power & Politics looks at some of the most important debates in our country through the lens of rock music. The exhibit includes exclusive video interviews with people such as Bono and Jimmy Carter, and combines them with interactives, photography and artifacts to examine how music has both shaped and reflected our culture norms on eight political topics: Civil Rights, LGBT Issues, Feminism, War & Peace, Censorship, Political Campaigns, Political Causes and International Politics. The exhibit is organized by presidential administrations – from Eisenhower through Obama – and uses historical context to shed insight into how we view these issues today. Examples of artifacts included in the exhibit are: · Jimi Hendrix’s “Star Spangled Banner” Fender Stratocaster from Woodstock · John Lennon’s acoustic guitar from the 1969 Montreal and Amsterdam “Bed-ins for Peace” Correspondence between the FBI and Priority Records regarding N.W.A’s "Fight the Power" · Original handwritten lyrics from Bob Dylan’s "The Times They Are a- Changin'," Chuck Berry’s "School Day," Neil Young’s “Ohio,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A” and Green Day’s “American Idiot” · Original Village People stage costumes · Artifacts related to the Vietnam war, the May 4, 1970 shooting at Kent State, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement Curators from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Newseum worked with veteran music journalist, author and television producer Bill Flanagan (VH1 Storytellers, CMT Crossroads, CBS News Sunday Morning) to create this unique exhibition. *Closed on Mondays, except Thanksgiving-Christmas. See website for more information.
