Jefferson Morley & Dr. Wheeler Winston Dixon

Date: 
Sunday, October 28, 2012 - 9:00pm
Program: 

In 1835, the capital of the United States was known as Washington City. The President at that time was Andrew Jackson, who was pro-slavery. But at least 4,000 inhabitants of the city were former slaves called “free men”. Racial tensions and relations in the Washington City reflected the conflicted feelings of the country as a whole. There were many white people who still believed in slavery of course; however, there were others who thought we should end slavery but send the Black Americans back to Africa.

James Lee Stanley & Cliff Eberhardt live at WICN

Can you imagine what the Doors songs would have sounded like if they had been created with acoustic guitars? Would ‘Light My Fire” or ‘Break On Through’ have been as powerful played on acoustic guitars and filled with vocal harmonies? Curious?

So were James Lee Stanley and Cliff Eberhardt.
