Pete Seeger was one of the best loved protester in America. In the 40′s and 50′s he was a popular radio personality and performer spearheading the American Folkmusic Revival – then Pete was blacklisted for being a suspected communist during the McCarthy Era – then in the 60′s he made it back to mainstream popularity with the civil rights and anti-Vietnam war movements.
