This blog has been started by Drs. Cynthia Lawrence and Marilyn Jackson who are Core Faculty Members and Alumnae of WISR. It is about songs and music that are inspiring and motivational for social change and social change movements. We are starting this blog around Labor Day in September 2010 in Berkeley, California. We intend to post old and new song lyrics to discuss and hope to engage in dialogue as we learn the songs and about their history. The song, Bread & Roses has been rolling around in my mind since I heard Judy Collins’ recording on Labor Day weekend.
