Subject: RE: Folk song banned
it does make one think that the southern music (much of which was written BY the African-Americans of the day) has been the truest influence on the music of America today, from blues to folk to good ol' rock and roll. I agree that sensitivity must come into play. However, the people of today must take into account that the components of that period of history have been the source of many favorable things today, the development of music being one of them.
