And Welcome to the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show, WNJC 1360 AM out of
Washington Township, reaching South Jersey and metro Philly, sponsored by Opednews.com . If you want to get news that's
Progressive and Liberal, go to Opednews.com And you don't even need to remember Opednews.com . Just do a Google search for "Liberal news" or
"Progressive opinion," and Opednews.com shows up right the top, usually. Why?
Because Google knows that that's where people go when they're looking
for Liberal News and Progressive Opinion.
My guest tonight
is Staughton Lynd. He is the author of a
bunch of books. The one that got my
attention was Accompanying: Pathways to Social Change. Staughton Lynd taught American History at
Spelman College and Yale University. He
was director of Freedom Schools in the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer. He was an early leader of the movement
against the Vietnam War. He was
Blacklisted and unable to continue as an academic. He then became a lawyer, and in this capacity
has assisted rank and file workers and prisoners for the past thirty
years. He's written more than a dozen
books with his wife Alice. Welcome to
I'm happy to be here, and you've got the intro exactly right in every
Well thank you. I read it from the book, so /
Rob Kall: It made it easy (laughs). So, you've got
a very interesting book here. And what
you're really talking about is a different way of activism, of making change
happen from organizing. You're saying
that accompanying is an approach to working with people that is different than
organizing. That's the nut, the core of
the message of the book, right?
