A Barque, a Brig and a Schooner... Walk into a Bar
Look Down and See: Amali Knobloch aboard Hudson River Sloop Clearwater
Show Notes

This week, Erin talks to Amali Knobloch with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater. We discover how the ship was part of the environmental awakening of the 1960s and how the founder, Peter Seeger's,  participation in the Civil Rights movement of that time is still reflected in their programming today.  We talk about the importance of seeing people that look like you in leadership roles and how a three week trip aboard Tole Mour at age 18 changed Amali's life.
