Interview with Saul Alinsky

Listen to an interview with Saul Alinksy, the most renowned community organiser of all times. The interview was conducted by Studs Terkel, a famous US broadcaster and Pulitzer Prize winner.

“You are described Saul as a professional agitator. What would your reaction be to that description?” , asks Stud Terkel
“That’s okey with me. “, answers Saul.

He shares his experiences with the movement, his community organising techniques and stories of the community members he listened to. And, even though this experience is that of another era it certainly resonates in “agitators” of today.
