This made this top 20 list of political songs of all time

Being white and politically active - including active on race issues - I had not heard this song before. I was a kid when this came out but still you would think sometime in the last 50 years, this would have crossed my path. My husband who has been politically aware and is older than me, he hadn't heard it before I played it for him last night either. We are white.

Here she is performing this in Holland 1965


Again, thanks for posting this.
