Bob Dylan, 1960s Culture, Civil Rights and more: Professor John Hughes interviewed.

In this short video Professor John Hughes talks to Dr Dave Webster about Bob Dylan’s place in the culture of 1960s America. 

In it we talk about the song The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carrol (see http://youtu.be/1jiYVUU1RXQ), as well as the  1963 ‘I have a dream’ speech of Martin Luther King Jr (an event Bob Dylan performed at). We also look at Bob Dylan’s lack of open comment about the Vietnam war (there is an articvle about this HERE).

This video might well suit those studying the place of Bob in 60s US culture and history..

Play Fair describe themselves at http://play-fair.org/about:

Play Fair is a global campaign coordinated by international trade union federations and NGOs; namely the International Trades Union Federation (ITUC), the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers’ Federation (ITGLWF), the Building and Wood Workers’ International (BWI) and the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC). The campaign calls on those who organize and profit from sports events to take specific steps to ensure that workers making sporting goods and building venues are not exploited, and that international labour standards are respected in the workplace as well as in the stadium.
