Subject: RE: MANY VOICES with Pete Seeger 1/28/05
I know about the Lafayette Prebyterian Church, their choir, and their social action programs because I used to live in downtown Brooklyn on State Street bewteen Bond and Nevins. From my bedroom window I could see the clock tower of the Williamsburg Savings Bank. The tower now belongs to HSBC Bank, a Chinese owned company. I still have many friends and relatives in that area. The Pete Seeger concert will take place in an historic old school, once called Sarah J. Hale High School and now called the Brooklyn School of the Arts. The school was named after a 19th century feminist, publisher, and friend of Abraham Lincoln. Among other things, Sarah J. Hale is credited with successfully campaigning to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.
