The intense acrimony pervading American civic life today is not unique. In fact, it can be traced to the founding of our republic. Our American story, filled with dramatic conflicts that give rise to hope and fear, assures victory to no leader, party, or faction. We, the people, are the ultimate arbiters of these conflicts and must choose how to go forward.
In partnership with the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library & Museum, the Hauenstein Center is bringing renowned historian Jon Meacham back to West Michigan. The bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner will give us insights from his latest book, The Soul of America: The Better Angels of Our Nature. Join us for an illuminating exploration of some of the most contentious moments in America’s past.
