Forty Years since '68: Reflections on a Turbulent Year
April 4 marks forty years to the day since the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Michael Hicks of the BYU School of Music will mark the occasion in the evening, with a performance of folksongs and ballads from the '60s, interspersed with some poetry and even some audio of one of King's famous public addresses. We take the occasion to reflect on the cultural legacy of that era. Guests Michael Hicks (who brings his guitar along) and scholar Phillip Snyder of the BYU Department of English, who specializes in topics and themes connected with the '60s, discuss this turbulent decade.—Original airdate: 4/4/2008
