CASE Artist-in-Residence, the legendary “Soul Man” Sam Moore, was recently recognized with a new exhibit at the HistoryMiami Museum.
Grayscale animated scenes of Moore’s pre-civil rights movement upbringing cover the walls around a pedestal displaying Moore’s 1967 Grammy and a platinum plaque for the Sam & Dave classic “Soul Man.”
The exhibition opened with a discussion titled “Music and the Civil Rights Movement” by Moore and Marvin Dunn, former chairman of the Department of Psychology at FIU and author of Black Miami in the Twentieth Century. The discussion aimed to explore the role music played in social justice movements in Miami during the 1960s, but it wound up highlighting the schism in approaches toward addressing today’s movements.
