The most prominent folk singers of the twentieth century, Woody Guthrie, ‘Sis Cunningham, Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Burl Ives, were also political activists with various associations with the American Communist Party. Using music, video, news clippings and records from extensive Freedom of Information Act filings--including never before released material--this lecture will bring to life these artists and the systematic way they were subject to government surveillance and suppression.
