Woody Approve? For Sure

Somehow I missed this Democracy Now! tribute to Woody Guthrie a few days back marking his 100th birthday, with Billy Bragg, Pete Seeger and others.  News to me:  Woody's father backed the Ku Klux Klan, may have been a member, or possibly taken part in a lynching. Also, author of book on Woody, sings a song that Woody wrote but did not record:  a different lynching in his hometown.
