Beyond the Classroom presents "The Singing Revolution!"

Description:
Most people do not think about singing when they think of revolutions. But, in Estonia, song was the weapon of choice when Estonians sought to free themselves from five decades of rule by the Soviet Union. The Singing Revolution is the name given to the step-by-step process that led to the reestablishment of the Estonian independence in 1991. Hundreds of thousands of people faced down their oppressors armed only with hope, truth, and song, and altered the course of recent history. This was a non-violent revolution that overthrew a very violent occupation. The Singing Revolution is an uplifting story of the human spirit! Its a powerful story of a nation that, almost literally, sang its way to freedom  Desson Thomson, Washington Post.
