SOTU SONGS2011_State_of_the_Union

President Obama’s speech this year resonated with recent songs—and these provide windows into American life today and inspiration to move beyond rhetoric toward movement.

We will of course listen to the anthem of American labor “Solidarity Forever” written 100 years ago this week and it resonates to this day.
