Author and journalist James Sullivan delivers a lively history of the progressive movements that shaped the United States – and the songs that accompanied and defined them. Covering the last 100 years of social conflict and progress, this talk explores how protest songs have given voice to the needs and challenges of a nation, and asked its citizens to take a stand by posing the question, “Which side are you on?”
