"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"

"I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.
The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

THE

JEWISH NEWS!

Susan Wilson

t a certain point in
life it is possible to
look back, take stock
of the fabric of a career and
begin to see what threads
hold it together. For some ar-
tists that thread may consist
of a singular quality like
"persistence," "luck" or
"chaos." In the case of Ronnie
Gilbert, her long and dis-
tinguished career has been
flecked by the twin threads of
social activism and constant
change.
Gilbert has sketched a
meandering line between her
birth in Brooklyn and her
current residence in Berkeley.
Along the way she has
adopted the roles of singer,
mother, clinical psychologist
and actress for stage and
screen. Audiences may
remember Gilbert for her
work with the Weavers, the
legendary folk group of the
'50s that included Pete
Seeger, Lee Hays and Fred
Hellerman. Or they may have
caught a quick glimpse of her
in recent movies like Crossing
Delancey or Running on
Empty.
Gilbert lives in a pristine
home in Berkeley where she

talks easily about everything
from music and Judaism to
motherhood and aging. "I
don't mind if you ask my age,
but I'd rather it not be writ-
ten,' she says. "If we were liv-
ing in a society which wasn't
so abominably age-conscious,
why would there be any ques-
tion about age? We should
think of getting old as
wonderful — the more - years
you live, the more you ac-
complish. Wrinkles are
something you earn." Never-
theless, Gilbert is youthfully
vigorous, something which
can be attributed to a life of
social activism.

Both of Gilbert's parents
were immigrants who worked
in New York's garment
district. Gilbert's father came
from the Ukraine and her
mother arrived from Warsaw
at age 16 with a union
background nurtured by work
with the Polish Jewish Bund.
As Gilbert explains, "For
Europeans political and
cultural work were always
connected. So for me it was
very natural to think of music
in terms of political songs and
social protest!'
With a mother who played.
piano and a father who at-
tended music hall and movies
regularly, it was only natural
