Singing America: Sarah Ogan Gunning

One of 15 children born in an Appalachian coal-mining town in 1910, the power of Sarah Ogan Gunning’s heritage, voice, and influence in American folk music has been said to be “giant,” far greater than that of Loretta Lynn or Emmylou Harris. This 38-minute film contains valuable historical images and songs from this now-nearly-forgotten singer and activist, with insights into poverty in America, even still today.
