The opening film “Pete Seeger: The Power of Song” (see video below) is about the folk singer who advocated for peace. Seeger was accused of being a communist by members of the U.S. government for his views but he continued to spread his message. Some of his most popular songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” "Turn, Turn, Turn” and "If I Had a Hammer.

Thank you, Dr. Davis for passing these along.
