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..
