Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Dylan made his name as a 'protest singer' and did quite well out of it.
Going to Mississippi would have been a small thank you for a launched career
I saw the remarkable Baldwin documentary last week which told how Bobby Kennedy was invited to walk into the all-white school in Louisiana with the brave black girl, Ruby Bridges
He declined
What a difference it would have made if a few more personalities had put their money where their mouths were
