KBOO Archive recordings: 40 years of radio-activism
In celebration of KBOO's 40th anniversary, we bring you recordings from the KBOO archives - dating back to 1968. Each weeknight at 6:00 - 7:00 pm from June 16th - 20th, we'll play some of these historic, rarely heard recordings.
Host Barbara Bernstein speaks with activist and author Tom Hayden. Hayden was a founding member of the Students for a Democratic Society in 1961, and author of its visionary call, the Port Huron Statement, described by Howard Zinn as "one of those historic documents which represents an era."
After helping lead street demonstrations against the war at the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention, where he was beaten, gassed and arrested twice, Hayden was indicted in 1969 with seven others on conspiracy and incitement charges.
After five years of trials, appeals, and retrials, he was acquitted of all charges.
