Teaching the Children about MLK Jr. Day - An Exercise in Democracy Post

by Ken Houghton

The songs played in the car:

Randy Newman, "Sail Away" (video, from this disc)

Billie Holiday, "Strange Fruit" (video)

U2 - "Pride (in the Name of Love)" (video)

Song #4 (which I have only on cassette) would have been Run-DMC, "Proud to Be Black" (video)

Essay Question: Would "By the Time I Get to Arizona" be appropriate between songs 3 and 4? Why or why not? Does its exclusion (or inclusion) provide evidence (either way) for Gary Becker's famous 1957 argument?
