Treasures from the Vault: 1962 recording of Malcolm X debating Bayard Rustin on Integration versus Separation.

Bayard Rustin is perhaps one of the most understated leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. He helped with the formation of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) in 1942, which was conceived as a pacifist organization based on the writings of Henry David Thoreau, and modeled after Mahatma Ghandi’s non-violent resistance against British rule in India. Bayard Rustin would devote his life to the non violent pursuit of equal rights for all.

Wed, 10/16/2013 - 9:00am - 12:00pm
Short Description: 
Why an austerity program is misguided and what really works to make our economy strong
THE POLITICS OF AUSTERITY Governments around the world have characterized spending as reckless wastefulness that has made the economy worse. They have advanced a policy of draconian budget cuts--austerity--to solve the financial crisis. But the global turn to austerity, or the policy of reducing domestic wages and prices to restore competitiveness and balance the budget, is harmful to both governments and individuals. In this special program we hear from a variety of scholars about the dangers of austerity and the need to expand growth and opportunity with stimulus programs.
