"I would hurl words into the darkness and wait for an echo. If an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight." Richard Wright, American Hunger

Freedom Week – Chimes of Freedom

I can’t resist sharing this with you. It is a very special version of Bob Dylan’s Chimes of Freedom, played at an Amnesty International festival in 1989.

It was put together by Bruce Springsteen, and includes Sting, Peter Gabriel, Tracy Chapman, Youssou N’Dour, and probably many other artists from my iPod. Truly magical!
