Leadership and Social Unrest

1 hour

The social unrest we are experiencing in New York and around the country today contains threads from events in the past that go all the way back to the Civil War and beyond. A panel of scholars—Harold Holzer, Randall Kennedy, and John Farrell—examine events like the 1863 New York Draft Riots and Vietnam War and civil rights movement protests. This program also explores how such struggles have impacted presidential elections and what they might mean for Election Day 2020.
