Woodrow Wilson Guthrie was a voice that literally bridged generations of change in America, from his birth in 1912 to death in 1967. His songs and stories rode the rails of the Great Depression, his merchant marine service during World War II featured a sign on his guitar “This Machine Kills Fascists” with anti-Hitler songs to match, and his continuing musical influence through 1,000 songs was a powerful force shaping social protests and cultural changes of the 60s. "This Machine Surrounds Hate and Forces it to Surrender." Indeed!
