Tom Hayden, author of the famed Port Huron Statement and a leader in student, antiwar, and civil rights protests in the 1960s, is on tour with his newest book  Listen, Yankee!: Why Cuba Matters.

Listen, Yankee is informed by the author’s unique history—not only as an observer of Cuba’s complex and intricate past, but also as a revolutionary leader of student movements in the US, one whose efforts to mobilize political change in the US mirrored a simultaneous radical transformation in Cuba.

“This books is much more than an account of the politics of the current thaw: it is a memoir and a meditation, a thoughtful reflection on the inter-American struggles of activists, intellectuals and politicians for a more just world.” — Greg Grandin, author of The Empire of Necessity: Slavery, Freedom, and Deception in the New World.
