Khari Wendell McClelland “Song Of The Agitators” – Listen

Taken from Khari Wendell McClelland’s new album ‘Freedom Singer’ which has re-arranged and re-invigorated a set of songs that were contemporary with his great-great-great-grandmother’s escape to Canada via the Underground Railroad.  Some are quite well know – like ‘No More Auction Block’ – but others are being dragged from historical obscurity and given a shining new coat of paint and presented once more as a reminder of just how hard life could be in the Land of the Free only 150 or so years ago.
