Thisis first generationmuseum-quality print, direct from the original negative, which was recently discovered as part of a trove of never-before-seen negatives from the 1963 Newport FolkFestival, a seminal moment in the history of activism, pop-culture andgeneral considered to be Bob Dylan\'s first major performance.
In 1962, two young members of theStudent Nonviolent Coordinating Committee(SNCC) formed a gospel vocal quartet named theFreedom Singers. And in 1962,Pete andToshi Seegerassisted the Freedom Singers in organizing a nationwide collegiate tour. As a result, the civil rights movement became deeply embraced bythe folk music community. In 1963, the Freedom Singers performed on the first night of the Newport Folk festival, and on the second night Joan Baez joined SNCCactivists and roughly 600 festival-goers on a march through Newport. The crowd walked past the Bellevue Avenue mansions and into Touro Park, where SNCC\'sexecutive secretaryJames Formanand Freedom Singers leaderCordell Reagondelivered speeches, rallying support for theMarch on Washingtonscheduled for thefollowing March.
For the final performance on Friday Wein had scheduledPeter, Paul and Mary. But under the persuasion of Albert Grossman, who was managing Peter, Paul andMary, Wein decided to allowBob Dylan(whom Grossman was also managing) to close the night. After Peter, Paul and Mary finished their afternoon set, Weinannounced that they would reappear at the end of the evening. Dylan performed a set consisting of particularly topical songs: \"With God on Our Side\", \"Talkin\' JohnBirch Society Blues\", and \"A Hard Rain\'s Gonna Fall\". Peter, Paul and Mary then returned and performed an encore of \"Blowin\' in the Wind\". Amidst a \"deafening roarof applause”they brought to the stage Dylan, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger,Theo Bikeland the Freedom Singers. The singers stood in a single line facing the audiencewith crossed arms and clasped hands and began to sing a variation on the Baptist hymn \"I\'ll Overcome Some Day\". The hymn\'s new incarnation - \"We ShallOvercome\" - had become an anthem for the Civil Rights Movement.
