La Dra. Bernice Johnson Reagon recuerda al ícono musical Odetta (1930-2008)


Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Considerada la “Reina de la música Folk estadounidense”, Odetta llevó a las audiencias de todo el mundo la música de las raíces estadounidenses y especialmente el folk, el blues y el gospel afroamericano. Odetta murió a principios de este mes. Cuando le preguntaron a Rosa Parks qué canciones eran las más importantes para ella, respondió: “Todas las canciones que canta Odetta”. Escuchamos a la propia Odetta y hablamos con la Dra. Bernice Johnson Reagon, miembro original de los SNCC Freedom Singers y fundadora del grupo Sweet Honey and the Rock.
