gallery: Activist Discs

This gallery is part of the 800+ folk, bluegrass and political recordings collected and curated by Henry Finkelstein.  What really caught our attention were the political, activist and protest recordings illustrated here.  One favorite is the “Don’t Mourn” LP features songs written by Joe Hill (Joel Emmanuel Hägglund) and the title references a letter by the labor organizer and songster on the day before his execution in Utah. 

So a big thanks to Henry and Shirley for this wonderful gift and hope you enjoy this gallery destined to get you off your Trump and into the streets!
