A nice--and highly listenable--talk by AMY GOODMAN, host and producer of *Democracy Now!*. Goodman presents several interlocking "stories of uprisings, occupations, resistance and hope" by somewhat-ordinary people (mostly Americans) whose activism changed the world.
This week she tells the parts of the stories never reported by the corporate media-- about Rosa Parks, Mamie Till, Martin Luther King Jr., Bowe and Bob Bergdahl, and others.
Goodman spoke at the Socialism 2014 conference in Chicago on June 26, 2014. Audio courtesy of wearemany.org.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boardwalk") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
OF NOTE: Goodman reads, in full, LIFE magazine's rabid denunciation of M.L. King following his Riverside Church speech against the Vietnam War (April 4, 1967).
