American Masters

American Masters, Holly Near

American Masters, Holly Near

Friday, March 22, at 10:30 p.m.
Repeats Saturday, March 23, at 4 a.m.

Also airs on Fusion on Sunday, March 3, at 4 p.m. and Thursday, March 7, at 7 p.m.

An outspoken political activist and singer-songwriter, Holly Near’s music and life story illustrate how song can have the power to send a clarion call and influence the course of social justice—from the lesbian and women’s movements to anti-war efforts and the fight to give South American women a voice.

 In addition to new interviews with Near, this film features insights from the performer’s friends, family and collaborators in music and the social justice movement, including Jane Fonda; Gloria Steinem; the late Ronnie Gilbert of The Weavers; her cousin, actor Kevin Bacon; the late author, activist and politician Tom Hayden; pianist and composer Jeff Langley; and more.
