Friends and Colleagues:
I just posted “Honoring Guy Carawan” on Huffington Post as a tribute to
the legendary singer, folklorist, and activist whose arrangement of "We
Shall Overcome" became the anthem of the American civil rights movement.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, Guy’s friends and fans will
celebrate Carawan at a "Singing for Justice" concert on Saturday,
October 23, 2:30-5 pm, at the home and garden of Jan Goodman & Jerry
Manpearl, 939 San Vicente Blvd., Santa Monica, CA (NW corner of Larkin).
Tickets are $35. To purchase tickets, go to this website:
Proceeds will go to the Highlander Center, the remarkable training
center in Tennessee for grassroots activists, including Rev. Martin
Luther King and Rosa Park. Guy has served as Highlander’s music director
for over 50 years.
You can learn more about the event, the Highlander Center, and Guy’s
fascinating life, in my article.
