“We Are One”: “Culture of Protest” Highlights Workers’ Struggles of Yesterday & Today

Professor Dick Flacks describes the next broadcast of “Culture of Protest”:

“In conjunction with the April 4th anniversary of the murder of Martin Luther King, a big labor-based coalition is sponsoring nationwide events supporting the rights of working people and resistance to austerity programs that protect the super-rich and assault the poor. And on Tuesday, April 5th, a nationwide teach-in on these matters will be kicked off with a national internet presentation by leading scholars ["Fight Back USA! A National Teach-In: On Austerity, Debt, Corporate Greed (and what YOU can do about it)" will be simulcast live on KCSB from 11am-2pm]. Tonight’s radio show highlights these themes with music drawn from workers struggles past and present.

We take note of the fact that Dr. King died in a Memphis battle for collective bargaining rights for city workers, and that April 4th marks the anniversary of the deaths of 29 miners in the Massey mine in West Virginia. Songs about all this and much more.”

“Culture of Protest” airs Thursdays in the Winter from 6-7pm on KCSB.
