NHC Webinar on Protest and Civil Unrest in the United States: A Historical Exploration

The events of the past several weeks have brought political protest, police brutality, and civil unrest back into the headlines. Activists, politicians, and political pundits daily offer observations and analysis on cable and broadcast news, Facebook and Twitter, and newspaper op-ed pages.

As the American Historical Association has repeatedly stated and as all historians know, “Everything has a history.”  In this inaugural webinar, the National History Center brings together five historians of 20th Century America to address the historical background surrounding the current crisis in the United States. 

On June 11, 2020, the National History Center hosted its inaugural web session on “Protest and Civil Unrest: A Historical Exploration.”  That session featured

Chad Williams (Brandeis University)
Marcia Chatelain (Georgetown University)
Michael Flamm (Ohio Wesleyan)
Cheryl Greenberg (Trinity College)
Thomas Sugrue (New York University) 
Eric Arnesen (George Washington University)
