One of America’s most prominent public intellectuals, Jon Meacham is a regular contributor to TIME and The New York Times Book Review. His national bestseller, “American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House,” won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009. The year 1968 was full of historic events, from the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy to the advances made by antiwar, civil-rights, and feminist forces. In this free public lecture, Meacham will explain how the legacies and lessons of that time still resonate in the world today.
