WOODY GUTHRIE and "OLD MAN TRUMP"

Date/Time

Apr 14, 2019
04:00 PM until 06:00 PM

Description

Will Kaufman’s Woody Guthrie and “Old Man Trump” is a song-and-spoken-word “live documentary” telling the story of Guthrie’s battles against his racist Brooklyn landlord, Fred C. Trump, father of the United States president. Based on unpublished songs, letters, and notebooks that Will discovered in the Woody Guthrie Archives, the show brings to life all the anger and contempt that Guthrie felt for those in power who will deny justice to their fellow human beings on account of the color of their skin.

About Will Kaufman:

He has written three books on the legendary balladeer: Woody Guthrie, American Radical (2011), Woody Guthrie’s Modern World Blues (2017), and Mapping Woody Guthrie (2019). Will’s day job is as Professor of American Literature and Culture at the University of Central Lancashire, England.
