Been wondering if there is a literature out there about music altering power, stories in history, then or now, where musical works did something to power structures like governments or other. Like the stories people sent me last month about Leadbelly getting out of jail after writing music about the governor. Like Stevie Wonder writing MLK birthday song and eventually a holiday was established. Like Pussy Riot waking up Russia about it’s totalitarianism run amok. Are there writers or thinkers associated with this? Christopher Smalls maybe? Others?
