It’s been a tumultuous week around the world, with people grieving in their homes, glued to their screens in disbelief and outrage and marching in the streets against racism and police violence. It’s hard to believe that more than 50 years since the civil rights movement in the USA and 30 years since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody in Australia, black people are still being murdered by people in uniform,  and systemic, institutional racism and white privilege seem as entrenched as they have ever been.

This week, in recognition of recent events,  Marty and Venetia share some tunes from the 1970s that seem just as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. Some are sad, some are angry, some are hopeful. All are moving. If music alone could change the world we would all be free.
