Richie Havens

Richie Havens grew up in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn. His father was Native American, his mother from the Caribbean. He hung out in Greenwich Village of the 50s and 60s, made a few records, then appeared at Woodstock — he was the very first on stage — where he sang “Freedom,” the song that was to make him famous. Over the years, on the basis of this and the classic Woodstock film, he has managed to stay in the public eye. They Can’t Hide Us Anymore is apparently another in a long list of credits designed to boost his image.
