David Rovics 

Songwriter, blogger, podcaster. 
“David Rovics sings people’s history to life. His songs can be funny, poignant, or outrageous; but they never fail to inform and inspire. These provide a brilliant soundtrack for educators who seek to nurture students’ empathy — to bring them closer to the people whose lives we seek to illuminate in our classes. Now, Rovics has organized many of his songs into themed teaching modules, adding commentary and context. What a gift to educators everywhere.”
