The Beatles helped to reshape Western Pop music in the 1960s and were the most successful band ever. The Beatles had four member in their band; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and RIngo Starr.
Paul McCartney wrote this song, Blackbird about civil rights for African Americans. Slavery had been abolished in America but racism was still happening and life just wasn't equal for African Americans. There was a huge struggle for equality, lots of dreadful things were going on, people were dying. In the 1950s and 1960s, the civil rights movement - led by Martin Luther King - challenged 'white supremacy'. After reading about this, Paul wrote the song Blackbird about a black woman, in support of the the movement.
