Against the Grain

Songs of Struggle, Songs of Hope

There was plenty of labor militancy in the U.S. in the early 20th century. Much of that militancy was met with violence; workers were brutalized and sometimes murdered for organizing to demand fair wages and decent working conditions. These sometimes life-and-death struggles were enshrined in song. Mat Callahan talks about the tunes he and Yvonne Moore have revived on a new CD and companion songbook. (First airing of full-length interview.)
