Rising Up With Sonali

Remembering Tom Hayden 1939-2016

young_tomDonald Trump worries that the November 8th election could be rigged against him. Investigative journalist Greg Palast thinks it could be rigged in his favor. We’ll speak with Palast today about his new documentary, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: A Tale of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits. And, journalist Larry Bensky joins us to discuss the life and legacy of the late Tom Hayden. Hayden, a long-time progressive political activist died at the age of 76 on Sunday. And, we’ll go back decades, deep into the vault of the Pacifica Radio Archives, to hear Tom Hayden in his own voice, from a speech he gave in 1961 on registering African Americans in Mississippi.
