Sam's Salon: Music, Song and the Civil Rights Movement

Pete Seeger and his music played a central role in the Civil Rights Movement. Seeger inspired thousands to sing with him on his lifelong quest for freedom and justice.

Hear live and recorded music that has inspired Americans to march together for a better world. Woodhouse’s guests are USD Professor of Political History Virginia Lewis and recording artist B. Slade, the star of the REP’s production of the musical The Who’s Tommy and a former minister of music for a local African American congregation.
