Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:
Our guest- Rhone Fraser, a USF graduate student and a WMNF news volunteer is the author of "A Surviving Legacy: Nonviolent Resistance in the Congressional Black Caucus, 2001-2007."
The piece is Fraser's thesis. He will study for his PhD at Temple University.
Fraser writes: "Select members of the Congressional Black Caucus through their votes, speeches, arrests and nonviolent forms of protest practice a renewed kind of nonviolent resistance against a neoconservative political agenda advanced by the executive branch of the U.S. government in the past six years."
Fraser spoke about his thesis and the connection between the CBC today and the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
