Revisiting Port Huron
April 11, 2012
The Port Huron Statement, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, was the manifesto of Students for a Democratic Society and a foundational text of the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s. Tom Hayden, the statement’s primary author, joins Noam Chomsky, Boston Review, and the MIT Center for International Studies to consider the Statement five decades after its publication.
Tom Hayden is a political activist, politician, and author. His most recent book is The Long Sixties: From 1960 to Barack Obama.
Noam Chomsky is Institute Professor and Professor of Linguistics at MIT (emeritus).
