Thread Name: African American Protest Slogans & Songs
Subject: RE: African American Protest Slogans & Songs
M.Ted, it's sometimes difficult to convey the spirit and intention of words over the internet. This morning, I re-read my questions to you about where and when you had heard African Americans singing civil rights songs and am concerned that you might have taken exception to the questions or how I phrased them.

I'm writing this post to try to convey that I was asking those questions in the spirit of an {albeit] amateur folklorist with the intent of eliciting demographical information that may be helpful in fleshing out a sense of when, where, who, and how civil rights songs are sung nowadays.

I certainly didn't mean to be interrogative in the negative sense of that word, and hope that you didn't take my questions that way.
