Summary: From The Civil Rights marches and antiwar moratoriums of the 1960s through Live Aid and right up to the Free Tibet concerts of today, musicians have played an essential role in raising awareness of human rights issues. In Stand and Be Counted, David Crosby tells the powerful story of why artists were willing to put themselves on the line -- often at great risk -- for causes they believe Crosby's own longtime commitment brings a compelling personal perspective to his narrative, as do his revealing interviews with fellow activists such as Elton John, Bonnie Raitt, Don Henley, Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, Michael Stipe, Jewel, Aretha Franklin, and Sting.Crosby's dramatic narrative provides a "you are there" feeling as artists relate emotionally riveting events: Harry Belafonte movingly recalls the night he performed at a Martin Luther King, Jr., rally for nonviolence in the South, and Sean Lennon speaks poignantly of the men of peace who've been assassinated, including his own father, John Lennon.Stand and Be Counted is an inspiring work that speaks to everyone of the power of acting passionately on your convictions.
