Conversations w/Great Minds P1 - Tom Hayden - Why Cuba Matters
Legendary activist and author Tom Hayden, Listen Yankee!: Why Cuba Matters/Peace & Justice Resource Center joins Thom on The Big Picture. While the Cold War ended more than two decades ago - the relationship between Cuba and the United States has remained frozen - until now. As President Obama starts to normalize relations with our revolutionary neighbor to the south - how will that change America's image abroad? And how will it change the political system right here at home? As a founding member of the Students for Democratic Society - Tom played a pivotal role in the anti-war movement of the 1960s and was the author of the famous Port Huron statement that catalyzed a generation of activists. He also served in the California legislature for almost two decades - and is currently the Director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center.
