30735 The Presidency: Campaigns and Crises   NEW!

As Americans, we hope that our leaders are wise, honest, and responsive to the public will. Yet, history has shown that is not always the case. We’ll look at some of the lesser-trod byways and shadowy corners in American Presidential history during the following sessions: Campaign Promises: Broken and Unfulfilled; Third Parties and the Rise of the Secret Ballot; The Dark Secrets of Disabled Presidents; and The Stain that Haunts Us; Racism and the Presidency.

Offered in cooperation with the Ramsey County Library with support from Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries. Moderated by Judy Woodward, history coordinator.

 

Schedule: 4 sessions | W 3/24/2021–4/14/2021 | 1:00 PM–2:30 PM | Online
Course Leader(s): J B Andersen
Seats Available: 205
