UCSB Professor Emeritus Richard Flacks

Of his next broadcast, “Culture of Protest” host Professor Richard Flacks writes: “It was June 1982 when I started to do the ‘Culture of Protest,’ and this month I’ll be doing some shows that mark the moment. This Thursday will be kind of special: We’ll rebroadcast the first show. It’s a program which coincided with the 20th anniversary of the Port Huron Statement and, during the show, we read some excerpts from that manifesto of the Sixties’ New Left.

So the rebroadcast is especially timely because it will mark the 50th anniversary of Port Huron as well as our 30th. During the hour, much music from the sixties that resonates with the text and the times. A nice mixture of nostalgia and inspiration, I think.”

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