An all-star assemblage of musicians, writers, and activists honor Fred Ho -- celebrated composer-bandleader, virtuoso baritone saxophonist, author of multiple books and lifelong radical activist. A self-described "revolutionary matriarchal socialist and aspiring Luddite" (The New York Times), Ho for four decades was a fierce warrior against exploitation and oppression wherever they persisted, including in his very public battle with cancer. Free.
