“Culture of Protest” host Prof. Dick Flacks says of this week’s broadcast: “The Maccabean struggle celebrated as Chanukah was I think the first recorded movement for national liberation. On “Culture of Protest” we celebrate Chanike as a time to remember not only the Maccabees themselves but the long tradition of similar struggles down to the present–people fighting against occupation, resisting efforts to erase their culture. This tradition is a heroic one but also has spawned fanaticism and tragic bloodshed. We’ll be featuring songs that help reflect on this tradition…”

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