R.I.P. Pete

Today we lost Pete Seeger, one of the great environmentalists of several generations. Just as the "STEM to STEAM" bandwagon is making its rounds, we remember decades of Pete's work, using music in the service of environmental education.


A couple of days after Pete's death, I heard this lovely short story about one of his last acts of grace.

Throughout the week, NPR has aired a number of tributes and remembrances about Pete Seeger, a pioneer of both music and environmental activism who was not afraid to run afoul of unjust laws.
