Public Affairs Conference - How did we get here? An historical perspective on our wild 2016 election
Date and time
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM, April 04, 2017
Description

World-renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin shines a spotlight on the changes in our political system over the past 150 years that bring us to today: The most exhausting, electrifying and acrimonious presidential campaign cycle in recent history. Through rich stories of parties, polls, personalities, promises, past candidates and present-day hopefuls, Goodwin educates and entertains as she transports us back to a simpler time to understand the transformation that has produced today’s eternal campaigning. Goodwin finds hope that however fractured our modern political culture seems, our democracy has survived – even thrived – through more troubling times in the past.
