Venthony Alan Lomax: Another View (80* d) RE: Alan Lomax: Another View 30 Jul 02


I recntly read an article in the New York Times that, in essence, stated schoolchildren don't know much about George Washington these days because the writers of modern textbooks feel that heroic white men on horseback "aren't very popular" anymore.

Maybe, maybe not.

All I know is that if it weren't for the Lomax recordings --condescending and biased as the underlying motives may have been -- my life would have been robbed of a great deal of joy.

With every good wish, Tony
