“Culture of Protest” host Prof. Dick Flacks says of tonight’s broadcast (Thursday, July 7th):

“It’s not far fetched to see the worldwide uprisings, from Athens to Madison, as scenes from the actual class struggle–workers defending their interests and rights in the face of financial elites drive to impose austerity while their profits and wealth soar. So this week we’ll hear songs–new and revived–that aim to define and inspire working class consciousness and action. Songs by performers known and unknown, envisioning and responding to the uprising.”

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