Watch Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 9pm & Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 4pm on WMHT TV.

Where Have all the Flowers Gone is a singalong memoir written by Pete Seeger. This book is now in its third printing (including revisions and additional material). Stories and anecdotes are supported chronologically with approximately 200 songs (music and lyrics) that Pete wrote or with which he is associated – “Guantanamera,” “Where Have All The Flowers Gone,” “If I Had A Hammer,” “Turn Turn Turn,” “Wimoweh,” “We Shall Overcome” plus some new songs and more. Within these pages, Pete provides perspectives on everything from songwriting and the music business to social activism – including insight drawn from his experiences with the labor, peace, civil rights and environmental movements.

These pages from Where Have all the Flowers Gone feature one of the newer songs written by Pete, added to the book for this new edition. “Take It from Dr. King” is Pete’s tribute to the late, great civil rights leader.
