Pete Seeger special on Democracy Now

Democracy Now had a great 4th of July special focused on the late Pete Seeger - known to American new music enthusiasts as a son of Charles and Ruth Crawford Seeger.

The episode begins with an excerpt of Morgan Freeman reading Frederick Douglas' powerful 1852 speech, The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro, then goes into interviews with Seeger from 2013 and 2004.

A favorite quote:
"They're all tangled up. Hooray for tangling!"
