Music has always been an important agent for social, political, and economic change in America. This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Woody Guthrie, whose Depression-era songs of protest still resonate today. Digging into the songs and stories of his life adds a vital dimension to an appreciation of his work. First-person stories and historical perspective will frame the discussion.
