Join Nation Editorial Director and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Eric Foner on Wednesday, June 24, at 12PM EDT for an urgent conversation about serious challenges to voting rights, due process, and equal protection under the law.
A dynamic public speaker and powerful advocate of racial justice in academia, Foner has served as president of the Organization of American Historians, the American Historical Association, and the Society of American Historians. His book Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, 1863-1877 remains the definitive, standard history of the period taught to millions of students each year. His recent book documenting a series of momentous Supreme Court decisions that led directly to the racist, state-based Jim Crow system and current efforts at voter suppression couldn’t be more relevant today.
