coming to America
The convergence of Columbus Day with large scale national demonstrations demanding congressional action on immigration reform leads us to a Culture of Protest radio hour in which we use songs to illuminate the past and present struggles for inclusion and immigrant rights. There’s a large body of songs reflecting the experience of immigrants over the last 150+ years, and ones that call us to the promises and premises inscribed on the Statue of Liberty. We’ll hear some of these–but we’ll begin with Buffy 
St. Marie’s classic musical channeling of those who were already here.
