KTRU Tuesdays: Moral Majority and Politics

In our continuing coverage of elections of yore, this October 31, 1980 KTRU clip comes from the radio show, “To the Point.” Thad Pugh interviews Dr. Niels Nielsen about the rise of the moral majority and its effect on politics in 1980.

If you have an interest in this topic, we have a few collections, including the William Martin Religious Right research collection and One Nation Under God? film project interviews and research materials.
