Saul Alinsky, American community organizer, political activist, and writer discusses his book "Rules for Radicals" with Studs Terkel

BROADCAST: Dec. 31, 1971 | DURATION: 00:57:02


Community organizer and social activist, Saul Alinsky speaks about his newest book, "Rules for Radicals," and reminisces about his work in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, his advocacy for African-American labor rights, and his connection with the Mexican-American civil rights movement in California. Although Studs' introduction states that this is a rebroadcast of a 1962 interview, that is incorrect. The interview was recorded in 1971.
