9/11 Museum to Host Special Tribeca Film Festival Screening & Civil War Program

A new CNN documentary explores music after 9/11.

Registration is now open for two new public programs at the 9/11 Memorial Museum. On April 25, in partnership with Tribeca Film Festival, the 9/11 Memorial Museum will host the premiere screening of CNN’s "Soundtracks: Songs that Defined History," a series that explores seminal moments in history and the music that has defined them.

This special Tribeca Film Festival screening will feature the episode about 9/11, which takes a closer look at songs such as Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," as music took center stage for a country fighting to heal and rebuild. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and NYU music historian Jason King.

The 9/11 Memorial Museum's programming season will conclude on Jun. 7 with the program, "From the Civil War to 9/11: America Confronts Mass Death." In this program, Harvard University President and historian Drew Gilpin Faust will discuss the Civil War and how this history shaped the American response to 9/11.
