Grazie mille to music blog Libro Musica for the post about “Color Line,” my latest release! The song is a co-write between myself and Woody Guthrie, who penned the lyrics back in 1950 in response to the blatant racism of his then-landlord, Fred Trump. The lyrics were unpublished until 2016, and upon reading them, I was struck (and dismayed) at the uncanny resemblance between the Trump Guthrie knew and our current President-elect.
From Libro Musica:
“I love that artists like Marina Evans, use their talents to share a message that will help to promote, shape and inspire listeners to create social change. This message about the dark days of our past helps us to prepare for the future.”
You can stream the song online for free, but if you choose to purchase/download the song, please remember that ALL proceeds from sale of the digital track will be donated to the Woody & Marjorie Guthrie Fund at the Huntington’s Disease Society of America. Woody Guthrie passed away from Huntington’s disease in 1967 and we are still working towards a cure for this fatal illness.
