Democracy In Crisis: Hy Thurman & The Young Patriots

October 27, 2017 – Hy Thurman & The Young Patriots

The Young Patriots were the Appalachian version of the Black Panther Party.  One of its leading members was Hy Thurman, who was also part of the original Rainbow Coalition in Chicago between the Patriots, Panthers and the Young Lords. Thurman joined Baynard Woods and me for our Democracy in Crisis podcast that springs from Baynard’s alt-weekly column of the same name. Enjoy this conversation, which focuses on organizing in white working class communities for economic and social justice and against racism. We cover the history and reality of it — from 1967 to the world we confront now, 50 years later.
