Notes

"A revolution is unfurling - America's unfinished revolution. It is unfirling in lunch counters, buses, libraries and schools - wherever the dignity and potential of men are denied. Youth and idealism are unfurling. Masses of Negroes are marching onto the stage of history and demanding their freedom now!" -A Philip Randolph
What this album is saying is that FREEDOM DAY is coming in many places, and those working for it mean to make it stick. In 1937, a Negro who still remembered slavery spoke of what it was like in 1865. "Hallelujah broke out... Everyboby went wild. We all felt like heroes, and nobody had make us that way but ourselves." It's happening again.

Recorded: Nola Penthouse Sound Studio, New York, August 31rd and September 6, 1960
