Graduation season and each year at this time Culture of Protest presents an alternative commencement speech, featuring the voices of contemporary troubadours reflecting on the state of the world, the future, and how to find a true place in it. This year we'll have something very special--the voice of Tony Kushner giving a commencement address a couple of years ago. he's our leading playwright, and was almost denied an honorary degree at this year's CUNY graduation. Much protest overturned that, he got the degree...and it seems fitting to a Kushnerian address to graduates. Plus many songs of recent vintage that seem relevant to the occasion.
