The second part of David Little's scintillating series of presentations, Listen to This! History of Protest Music Part 2: 1962-1966, occurs Wednesday at the library’s main branch. This time, Little — a longtime progressive political activist and public-policy communications consultant — jumps into the fire of the tumultuous mid-1960s with his topic, "The Heat of the Battle: Dallas, Civil Rights, Free Speech & Seeds of Insurrection," playing and talking about such songs from 1962 to 1966 as Tom Paxton's "Lyndon Johnson Told the Nation" and Barry McGuire's "Eve of Destruction." 


7-8 p.m. Wednesday. Free. Popular Library Lounge, Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, Main Branch, 800 Vine St., Downtown, programs.cincinnatilibrary.org.
