More Pete Seeger
Dahlia Lithwick has the full transcript of Pete Seeger's testimony before a subcommittee of the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1955 Slate. Reading it all these years later it almost sounds like a joke although it was anything but back then.
My one memory of Pete Seeger is seeing him with Arlo Guthrie at Arizona State University in the mid-80's. I can't say that I recall anything specific except that I enjoyed the music and I am pretty sure we sang along and clapped. A few years earlier I had seen fellow member of The Weavers, Roni Gilbert, when she appeared at ASU with Holly Near. Between the two shows, it felt like seeing the folk tradition passing from one generation to another.
Along with these personal memories, I and the rest of the world have Pete's music and activist legacy to give us encouragement.
