Heroes have been in very short supply lately. With the recent exit of Mandela and now Pete, we have come to recognize that these children of the Communist movement were every bit as ‘dangerous’ as we were once informed they were. I thank goodness for that. Thank you for your diverse service Pete!

Leonard Cohen, Peter Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan - More From The 1977 Televison Series "All You Need Is Love" - Another Slice of Episode 12 - "Go Down, Moses!: Songs of War and Protest”

Pete Seeger- The Beyond Legendary Mr. Seeger As He Appeared At His Madison Sqaare Garden 90th Birthday Celebration.

The House Committee on Un-American Activities called Seeger to hearings in 1955; instead of citing the Fifth Amendment as grounds for silence, Seeger cited the First, a move for which he was sentenced to a year in jail for contempt of court. At 94, Pete is still the very conscience of America.
