Ashley Clemente MHL 325-02 April 18, 2008 Woodstock 1969: Three Days Of Peace and Music That Defined a Generation From the beginning of recorded time, music, in any form, has always been very important to people . As we look back over the 20 th century, it is clear that popular music has changed drastically through that time in history . You can trace musical influences from today all the way back to slavery . With slavery came Africans who had unique styles of playing music that clearly had an enormous impact on music as we know it . After slavery ended African Americans found themselves creating the blues to help them through the hard times . Blues was sped up and commercialized to become jazz . Jazz and blues went through many different phases and eventually developed into rock and roll . It is rock and roll that we know best today . When it began, rock and roll was very different than it is now, but what has stayed the same is its original purpose, which is to have a good time and make a statement . In the 1960’s rock and roll had a huge following of young America .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
