50 states, over 200 years of history, and over 331 million people today—the United States of America is built on a massive platform of human experiences. Independence Day celebrates the nation’s dedication to freedom and opportunity for all. While we have come a long way and have plenty further to go in fully living up to that cause, the 4th of July serves as a reminder of what, and who, makes America unique. This summer, PARMA is celebrating Independence Day with our “Let Freedom Ring” playlist, composed of music that nods to America, its land, and the many human experiences that make up the nation’s history and culture.
