It’s life and times of American Master, Carl Sandburg. See the film, The Day Carl Sandburg Died, from American Masters and writer, director and editor, Paul Bonesteel.
Pete Seeger brought the song “We Shall Overcome” to the forefront of causes for American workers in the 1940s and later to the Civil Rights Movement in the 50s and 60s. As a singer and songwriter, his songs have always been about we, the people. See and hear Seeger remember Carl Sandburg’s 300 page poetic anthem, The People, Yes, and what it means to the American underdog even today.
The late and great Studs Terkel, author of Hard Times, Working, and The Good War, and his last thoughts on Carl Sandburg and the America Terkel documented and recorded his whole life.
“I also say, ‘The People, Yes,'” Terkel says, referring to the 300 page Sandburg poem of the same name. “But I have to add a proviso: The People, Perhaps or The People, Maybe.”
