It seems that most Americans have forgotten how much toil and trouble and how far our forebears had to travel to in order to create a thriving middle class in America. But here is something from Pete Seeger, with a few photos to graphically highlight some of what it took to get there. Happy 92nd Pete. Thanks for keeping a little of the spirit of solidarity alive.
Wake up America. Before it’s too late. Else it really is goodnight Irene.
Incidentally, if you click through to YouTube and let this song play on, past the end of this first song, it should play about 70 Pete Seeger songs.
