We Won't Move: Songs of the Tenants' Movement

As noted in the liner notes, " being a tenant has never been part of the American dream. " A myriad of emotions is encapsulated on this 1983 release: from anger and indignation brought on by poor treatment by landlords, to pride and resilience from a strong sense of community and family. Liner notes include detailed explanations of each song and a brief history of the tenant/landlord relationship.
