KickyC Songs of hardship and oppression??? (30) RE: Songs of hardship and oppression??? 15 May 98


One of my favorites for power and unity is "Bread and Roses". It's is a Mel Bay book on songs from American History. I don't have it here right now. It was from the Women's Sufferage Movement. As for a song of oppression, the Weavers did one called "Hay Una Mujer" which is about women missing in Chile at the hands of the government. I also really like Woody Guthrie's "Deportees". That's really about hardship and oppression.
