Web ExclusiveAugust 09, 2017

“Mother of Exiles” is a new song by Vermont writer Peter Gould made from the words of the poem Emma Lazarus wrote for the Statue of Liberty in 1883. The song was featured on today’s episode of Democracy Now! Gould describes the song as a “commentary on the meaning of the Statue and of our republic, in light of the new directives on immigrants and refugees, and the new wave of detentions and deportations.”
