issue (such as gender, race, class, immigration, or sexuality, for instance), historical event
(such as the Vietnam war, Civil rights era), or social or cultural movement (women’s
rights, environmentalism or anti-war activism, for instance). You may discuss how your
artist relates to more than one of these categories, as they often overlap. Provide relevant
background information concerning your chosen issue, event, or movement as well as
your selected songwriter or artist such that it is clear how the two relate to each other.
