Correct response: Who is Woody Guthrie?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The words were penned shortly after Woody Guthrie’s 1967 death by John Steinbeck, who had become a good friend of Guthrie’s in California. Both found much in common in protesting the Great Depression; Steinbeck’s preferred medium was the novel, Guthrie’s was the music. (Guthrie’s guitar famously had “This machine kills fascists” on it.) He wrote “This Land Is Your Land”, one of America’s most famous folk songs, in 1940.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well!
