MASSACRED CITIZENS REMEMBERED

Pictured are children of striking miners who had been at a party; The Christmas Eve Calumet massacre, 1913.

As an astute internet commentator, Brandon Weber, noted:

“Nobody was ever prosecuted or even arrested for causing the massacre. It is always thus: Those with money and power control the narrative, silence the truth, and thwart justice.”

The story, with many others, was retold in “the singing newspaper” conceived and produced this year by Moe Asch and Woody Guthrie. Sadly, the documentary album “Struggle” would be one of the last to be released on Asch Records before the label went bust (although it would immediately rise again as “DISC”) – but they went out on a brand high.

It’s the only set to feature in my “A-list” album chart of 1945 – but it’s a stone classic, and stands every bit the equal of “Dust Bowl Ballads” as a near masterpiece in the highly potent Woody Guthrie catalogue. Press play and read all about it…
