in 1970 Neil Young changed the trajectory of his career and music history forever—catapulting himself from simple songwriter to iconic protest singer with one song. That song was "Ohio."

Written and recorded in the aftermath of the massacre of four students by National Guardsmen on the campus of Kent State University, on May 4, 1970, “Ohio” resonated immediately and became identified as one of the anthems of the anti-Vietnam War movement. It has endured as a masterful, signature piece of political activism as songwriting. 

A concern for civil rights also emerges on Young’s 1972 album Harvest. In the song Alabama, Young describes southern whites as having “a weight on their shoulders.” He asks: “What are you doing Alabama? You got the rest of the union to help you along."
