GATEKEEPERS OF FREEDOM 2018:

TWENTY-FIVE REVIEWED CONCERTS, CDS, THEATRE PERFORMANCES AND A VERY SPECIAL GRAMMY MUSEUM EXHIBIT

VOICES THAT STOOD UP FOR A BETTER AMERICA IN 2018

Exclusive to FolkWorks

By Ross Altman, PhD

Ross AltmanHere are the Gatekeepers of Freedom for 2018—those performing and performance artists who travel, sing and record the music that keeps us sane in a mad world—who carry the torch of Woody Guthrie and Joe Hill, Pete Seeger and Paul Robeson, Marian Anderson, Billie Holiday and Phil Ochs, Utah Phillips and Rosalie Sorrels, Malvina Reynolds, Victor Jara and John Lennon. We turn to them in times of need, for inspiration, for their long memory, for satire and protest, above all, for truth.

HOPE AND HISTORY

By Ross Altman, PhD

Marian Rosa and Eleanor“History says, Don’t hope

On this side of the grave,

But then, once in a lifetime

The longed-for tidal wave

Of justice can rise up,

And hope and history rhyme”

--Seamus Heaney

For March, 2019, Women’s History Month, here is a celebration of three great American women whose lives intertwine—two at the beginning and one at the end: Marian Anderson, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Mrs. Rosa Parks.
