After a two-week hiatus, the weekly music tip is back!
The last track, “Grandma’s Words / Rise Out Of The Stone”, is the standout. I was really moved by the spoken intro – a sobering reflection on Japanese-American internment as practiced by the US government during World War II. The segment, apparently recounted by Saginaw’s grandmother, includes this timely warning:
Fear… does a terrible thing to people. It can change to hate, it can change to discrimination of all kinds…
An important lesson to keep in mind, for sure.
