Summary Pete Seeger was an internationally honored folk musician and political radical who devoted his life to furthering humanitarian causes and getting people to sing. This biography traces his musical career, including the period when he was blacklisted by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, and the growth of his conviction that freedom and justice had to be defended and that the power of song could be used to fight back when these ideals were threatened.
