American Masters will kick off Women’s History Month tomorrow with a profile of longtime singer-songwriter/activist Holly Near.
The one-hour documentary, Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives, will debut on PBS stations at 9 pm ET Friday (but check local listings for days/times in your area) and will stream starting Saturday at pbs.org/americanmasters and over PBS apps.
The show takes its title from Near’s political anthem “Singing for Our Lives,” probably her most famous song in a half-century of anti-war, women’s and LGBT activism.
Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives includes historic footage, plus interviews with Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, the late Ronnie Gilbert of The Weavers, actor Kevin Bacon (Near’s cousin), and Near herself.
