Leadership at the Turning Point: America and Its Quest for Statesmanship  

Americans are tired of politics as usual. We yearn for statesmanship - for leaders concerned about the next generation, not just the next election. This course focuses on five leaders at turning points in America’s history. We'll explore Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address, George Washington's Farewell Address, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Letter from the Birmingham Jail, Susan B. Anthony’s Statement at her trial for voting, and Gerald Ford's assumption of the presidency and pardon of Richard Nixon. In each class, we'll explore the leader’s words and deeds and look for lessons about leadership and statesmanship not just for their times but in ours.
