Should 2020 Be Forgotten? A Birmingham Choir Rings Out The Year With “Auld Lang Syne” | NPR

From the pews of a church where white deacons once refused to seat African Americans, a group of Black singers in Alabama reminds us why preserving our memories of this historic year is vital — even if we’d rather just leave 2020 behind.

They’re singing "Auld Lang Syne," the Scottish ballad synonymous with ringing in the new year. It begins with this line: "Should auld acquaintance be forgot / And never brought to mind?"

That question — of whether to forget the past — is central to the art film, "For The Sake Of Old Times", which is produced by 1504 (http://1504.co/) and premiered by NPR.
