Anyway--I second on McGrath's idea--what you should do is pick one particular issue, since there have been many issues that have elicited protest songs--From Free Soil, to a variety of union efforts, to civil rights, to the Vietnam war, to the environmental movement and have a sort of introduction that places it in the context of other "Protest" songs--
