Three Men, Three Movements is the inaugural concert event for Liberty: Unplugged!, the Mann's 2015 festival purposed to celebrate the messages and movements of three iconic men: Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela. The focus on these three icons coincides with the convergence of three anniversaries of note: the 150th anniversary of the 13th Amendment, the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, and the 25th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's release from Robben Island prison.

Liberty: Unplugged! will feature a series of special concert events, community partnership initiatives, and educational programs, beginning in May and continuing through September 2015. Through this festival, the Mann is inviting audiences, artists and scholars to ”unplug” history from its traditional modes of instruction, creatively reinterpreting the still-timely themes of these men and their movements: freedom from modern-day slavery, voting rights, and human rights (local and global).
