Next is a set of songs from The More Perfect album, a project of WYNC’s Radiolab assembling an collection of songs celebrating the 27 amendments to the Constitution.

There’s one by Aisha Burns on the Fifteenth Amendment eliminating racial classifications on voting:

The legendary Dolly Parton has a song about women’s suffrage and the 19th Amendment:
