Before the Memories Fade: Guy and Candie Carawan

On June 3, 2009, I interviewed Guy and Candie Carawan in their home in Tennessee. Meeting and talking with Candie and Guy was informative and delightful.

In the above photo I am taping Guy as he plays several songs, including "We Shall Over Come" which he contributed to the movement. When Guy plays, you know why he was asked to teach and lead songs during the movement. His voice and playing style brought the movement to life for me. Candie was also part of the movement. She began by participating in sit-ins in Nashville, Tennessee, and later traveled throughout the south participating in other sit-ins.
