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.

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.

The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History

program date: 
Fri, 10/08/2010

Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with historian Jill Lepore about her new book, "The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle over American History."

Jill Lepore, Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, offers a wry and bemused look at American history according to the far right, from the "rant heard round the world," which launched the Tea Party, to the Texas School Board's adoption of a social-studies curriculum that teaches that the United States was established as a Christian nation. The Whites of Their Eyes reveals that the far right has embraced a narrative about America's founding that is not only a fable but is also, finally, a variety of fundamentalism--anti-intellectual, antihistorical, and dangerously antipluralist.

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper '41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at the New Yorker. Her books include New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery, and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; and The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity, winner of the Bancroft Prize.

Moderator: Rebecca Nay.

Speaking in support of the changes: Ani Haines

Speaking in opposition to the changes: Daniel Flessas

Production note about this audio from the uploader Kathleen Stephenson: I did not have a recorded CD of this program, so I compiled the audio for this program from the KBOO air check, which is collected in segments. This audio was originally in four segments, which I strung together without editing. The program has a slight break of a second or two of missing audio between the segments. At each of those points you might notice a slight disconnect in what the speaker is saying because a second or two of audio was not captured by our automated air check.
