I grew up in Maryland near D.C. was a teenager 13 when the March On Washington happened, was very moved by that, got a few guitar lessons learned to play the guitar, was influenced by the folk movement, Pete Seegar etc. Ran away from home in 67, to the summer of love in San Francisco. Lived by singing on the street and t0ok part in anti war rallies. Went back to school and became a homecare attendant for 25 years. Still sing and play the guitar at rallies, and involved in human rights issues.
