« back to classes page
In his book The Soul of America: the Battle for Our Better Angels, Jon Meacham considers crises in American history from the Civil War through the Civil Rights movement. Meacham argues, “Fear can be overcome. What follows is the story of how we have endured moments of madness and of injustice, giving the better angels of which Lincoln spoke on the eve of the Civil War a chance to prevail—and how we can again.” We will place some of the events Meacham highlights into their historical contexts and draw our own conclusions. Please read the text before the first class.
