Introduction to Season 2 Listen, Organize, Act! Organizing & Democratic Politics

    • Education

A brief introduction to the new season of the Listen, Organize, Act! Podcast. This season explores the people, texts, and ideas that organizers have turned to again and again to inspire shared action and explain the meaning, purpose, and character of democratic politics. I start the series with an episode on the ancient Greek historian, Thucydides. A passage from his book The History of the Peloponnesian War is constantly used to teach about the relationship between power and politics.  And then, in turn, comes episodes on the democratic vision of Saul Alinsky, Ella Baker, Bayard Rustin, Hannah Arendt, Bernard Crick, and Sheldon Wolin. The series ends back in the ancient world, with two episodes on the relationship between the Bible and organizing. Tune in!
