Tom Hayden talked about his book The Long Sixties: From 1960 to Barack Obama (Paradigm Publishers; October 1, 2009). He argues that the Obama presidency is a direct result of changes in the U.S. that developed in the 1960s, including acceptance of interracial relationships, passage of civil rights and voting rights laws, and heightened enthusiasm for participatory government. He feels that the revolutionary fever faded as reforms were achieved, to the disappointment of many, and were co-opted by others. Mr. Hayden responded to questions from members of the audience.

Tom Hayden, a social activist, legislator, educator, and speaker, is the primary author of “The Port Huron Statement.” It was written in 1962 as a manifesto for the Students for a Democratic Society in 1962 and is considered the founding document of the Sixties movement. This event of the 26th Miami Book Fair International took place Saturday, November 14, 2009, 2:30 p.m., in Room 3208/3209 of Miami Dade College, Wolfson Campus. close
