Joe Hill: The Preacher and the Slave

It is so refreshing to see part of our music of protest history finally making it to i-tunes stores. We need more of these program in these trying times to remind people that our nation was made in part by the sacrifices of those who protested in the past and the present, as Occupy Wall Street unfolds. The show Joe Hill; the Preacher and the Slave is a jewel when one consider the similarities we face today. The only thing we have going for right now, is PEOPLE POWER and the duty to ORGANIZE.I have been teaching music of protest for the last 15 years at Wake Forest University, the journey has been amazing as I see how history repeats itself.Thanks and please continue to offer these programsPatricia Dixon
