This is an interview with Joe McPhee, a jazz musician from Poughkeepsie, NY. Mr. McPhee served as an American GI in Germany, which he discusses in the interview. He speaks of the discontinuity between fighting for people’s right in Europe and then coming home to America and being deprived of the same rights. After serving, Mr. McPhee was active with the African American students at Vassar College. Joe McPhee continues as a musician. Check out his website by clicking HERE.
