Summary

Pete Seeger became one of the nation's most influential activists and folk singers as the folk music revival, often revolving around protest movements, unfolded in the 1960s. This text uses Pete Seeger's life and music as a frame of reference to discuss the important role popular music playedduring the various protest movements in the 20th century. Seeger's life reflected the turbulence of his times and his songs sounded the spirit of the issues that he felt mattered most. Over the course of his long life, he composed songs we still sing today: "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All theFlowers Gone," "We Shall Overcome," "Union Maid," "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy," and "Garbage".This text is a useful supplement to many courses in US 20th Century History: US Since 1945, 1960s - and smaller, specialized courses that focus on protest movements: Civil Rights Movement, Protest and Dissent. At only 208 pages, this book provides instructors with a useable resource to discuss theconnection between popular music and political culture.
