MADISON’S HISTORY OF PROTESTS

Guest:  Stuart Levitan, author, Madison in the Sixties

It’s widely known that Madison was one of America’s centers of student protest during the 1960s. But the protests of the 1960s weren’t only about the Vietnam War.

On this intriguing program which takes us back to a remarkable period in Madison’s history, Stu Levitan joins “All About Living” producer, Jim Bartlett, to talk about the history of protest at the University of Wisconsin and in Madison – from the struggle over mandatory ROTC in the early 60’s to Dow Day in 1967 and the Battle of Mifflin 50 years ago this spring.
