VIDEOS: Caroline Herring

Our CultureWatch lead story for the December 2012 issue of Sojourners, “Singing the Stories Untold,” by Silas House, provides an in-depth look at the brutally honest musical stylings of Caroline Herring. With simplicity and grace, Caroline sings about the stories of the South and the rich and complex journeys of its people. Her modern, yet folksy sound and lyrical storytelling arguably make her “the social justice singer-songwriter of her generation,” according to House.

“Paper Gown” A song about Susan Smith, the young mother who drowned her two children in 1994 and blamed it on a fictitious African-American man.

“Black Mountain Lullaby” A song about 3-year-old Jeremy Davidson, a boy who was crushed to death by a massive boulder that dislodged from a mountaintop removal site.
