Bob Dylan started his three jobs in 1961, and in his life of american music lover, he played folk music, blues, rock, gospel, country, traditional pop, and jazz, as an engaged with the society man.

For exemple, he was against the idea of the Vietnam War, and he said lots of time " make love Not War", or " peace and love"!

What is the background?

In 1966, the boxer Robin Carter, known under the name of "Hurricane", and a man named John Artis had been accused of a triple murder in Paterson, New Jersey.

The next year, Carter and Artis were found guilty of the murders, simply on racial grounds.

In the years that followed, a lots of discussion emerged over the mistery, containing allegations, erroneous evidence, dubious testimony and an unfair trial.

Bob Dylan visited him in Rahway State Prison in Woodbridge Township, New Jersey.

They discussed, separated by the bars of the cell, and some time later – after he hesitated – Bob Dylan had decided to write a song for the honnor of this boxer unjustly accused only for the color of his skin.

Here comes the story of the Hurricane
The man the authorities came to blame
For somethin' that he never done
Put in a prison cell, but one time he coulda been
The champion of the world

What is it denounce ?

This song denounce the racism and the segregation towards black people, who didn't ask anything and who didn't make bad anything.

(It's one of the first Bob Dylan's protest song he wrote in the 1970s)
