I guess that part of growing up is finally deciding what you authentically inherit, what was it that was passed along to you by our elders. Then it’s your turn to keep it in the world by passing it along.” Utah PhillipsCaptured live on May 7, 1999 as part of a Free Speech Teach-In, the inestimable Golden Voice of the Great Southwest,” delivers 74 minutes of his trademark history, humor, song, and struggle in a signature performance. Utah’s songs and stories remind us to Don't Mourn, Organize,” and that we can be inspired, educated, and entertained while we do it.
