Desert Dancer Obit: Guy Carawan (1927-2015) (27) RE: Obit: Guy Carawan (1927-2015) 08 May 15


In tribute to Guy Carawan, from the University of North Carolina Southern Folklife Collection's blog. The Guy and Candie Carawan Collection is housed in the Southern Folklife Collection.

"Numerous media outlets have detailed Guy Carawan's legacy in obituaries this week. More people have learned of Carawan's role in popularizing an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement, "We Shall Overcome," teaching it to organizers at the first meeting of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Raleigh in 1960, this week than ever before. Our hope is that the materials presented here can expand from that moment and expose more of the world to the life and work of our friend and hero, Guy Carawan."
