Studs Terkel: listener and humanitarian

Studs Terkel: listener and humanitarian

The late Studs Terkel has been described as the 20th Century's greatest listener. In a career spanning seven decades Studs, as he was known by everyone, interviewed everyone from James Baldwin and Mohammed Ali to Bob Dylan and Mahalia Jackson but it was interviews with ordinary people and his uncanny ability to elicit fascinating stories that he's probably best remembered. Oral historian Alan Weider is the author of Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, but Mostly Conversation.
