More Optimistic Today Than Ever: A Talk with Pete Seeger

I've admired Pete Seeger for many, many years. Over the years, his songs have gone a long way towards helping to heal the wounds in our society. During the Civil Rights struggle, people sang his songs in protest, in prison and even while being beaten. At 90, Seeger is still a vibrant force and a great storyteller. In this interview, he continues to inspire as he looks back on his life and ruminates on his current projects. Truly an inspiring human being.

The Fork in the Road

Just completed a week of storytelling and multimedia work with a group of young women. Out of it, they created this short film, 'The Fork in the Road'. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. http://museartspace.blogspot.com/2010/08/teen-multi-media-week-comes-to-close.html?spref=fb
