Here I Stand: Elders' Wisdom, Children's Song

When senior members of a community go into schools and talk about their lives and work, and children write songs with Larry Long about what they have learned, they create a remarkable celebration of humanity and hard work. In these 1995 recordings, Alabama elders talk about their lives, and children from eleven rural public schools sing compositions based on the elders' words.

EN ESPAÑOL

Cuando los miembros mayores de la comunidad van a las escuelas y hablan de su vida y su trabajo, o cuando los niños escriben canciones con Larry Long acerca de lo que ellos han aprendido, crean una notable celebración de la humanidad y trabajo duro.

En estas grabaciones de 1995, los ancianos de Alabama hablan de sus vidas y los niños de once escuelas públicas rurales cantan composiciones basadas en las palabras de los ancianos.
