This week on From the Vault we present a Fourth of July-inspired episode centering on a 1970 Pacifica Radio Archives recording titled Honor America Day. Organized by President Nixon, hosted by Bob HopeHonor America Day was a showcase of patriotic observances and entertainment in Washington D.C. In true Pacifica vision, we’ve taken the liberty to remix this original recording with a few voices extra voices from the past – voices of the people in the arts, music, literature, poetry, activism, politics, education, theater, and film. Selections include the insights and musings of Alfre Woodard, Alice Walker , Howard Zinn, Mario Savio, Lena Horne, Norman Mailer, Stokely Charmichael, Rosa Parks, Bob Dylan, Jesse Jackson, Cesar Chavez, and many, many more.
