It was 1963 when Bob Dylan famously wrote, “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” and leveraged his fame to spur conversation during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. The writing process hadn’t been completed when — according to biographer Clinton Heylin — the iconic folk singer was visited by his friend and fellow musician, Tony Glover. Glover picked up a page of the lyric, looked to Dylan and said, “What is this shit, man?” Dylan replied, “Well, you know, it seems to be what the people want to hear.”
Dylan had an intrinsic understanding of everyday people, and responded with what has become an anthem for societal change in moments both big and small.
Now marks the beginning of change for our Society.
