The Journey Belongs to All of Us

WHERE MUSIC
MAKES HISTORY

America has a story to tell and The American Road is a
new way to tell it – actually, to sing it.

We use historically important American songs to give voice
to modern American history through the voices of those
who lived it, for real.

We tie original songs and contemporary covers to a robust
interdisciplinary history and civics education curriculum.

We connect student inquiries to related civic and volunteer
activities to build their knowledge as legacy-bearers of our
democracy and to benefit their communities.

We offer educational resources, original media and
interactive tech to support learning and engagement.

We deliver it all through an innovative digital platform.

The American Road is a music-driven education, community civic engagement, and multimedia initiative usable at school, at home and in communities nationwide.
