Of his next broadcast, “Culture of Protest” host Professor Dick Flacks writes: “This week a remarkable convergence of mass uprisings: hundreds of thousands of students protest higher tuition and repressive new laws, in Spain, mass uprisings against austerity, in Chicago, big marches against war and for ‘Robin Hood’ taxation. And this week marks celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Farm Workers, and this spring marks the founding of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade 75 years ago to enable Americans to join the struggle to defend the Spanish Republic against Franco. All of these happenings have musical accompaniments–and that’s what we’ll be offering on the radio Thursday evening.”

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