Various Walt Whitman Sampler Mixtape - Vol 2

0:0035:17

The Walt Whitman Sampler Mixtape Series is a 10-part collaboration between some of Philadelphia’s finest poets, singers and musicians working together to celebrate the life and work of the 19th-century American poet, Walt Whitman. Recognized internationally as the first major exponent of free verse, Whitman has been called America's "poet of democracy.” However, Whitman was indeed a 19th-century man and brought with him all of the problems of 19th-century men. Race, slavery, the rights of Native Americans, the roles of women and other matters were clearly areas of vulnerability for him, and he shared many common views on these issues with other white men of his time. That said, his influence still continues to this day.
