NOVEMBER EDUCATIONAL EVENT VIA ZOOM
November 18th from 5pm to 6pm
Author and educator William E. Leuchtenberg will be presenting from a series of lectures and the ensuing book called "The White House Looks South." Dr. Leuchtenburg is the William Rand Kenan Jr. professor emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is one of the country’s most eminent historians and among the most distinguished scholars ever to serve on their faculty.
Perhaps not southerners in the usual sense, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and Lyndon B. Johnson each demonstrated a political style and philosophy that helped them influence the South and unite the country in ways that few other presidents have. Combining vivid biography and political insight, William E. Leuchtenburg offers an engaging account of relations between these three presidents and the South while also tracing how the region came to embrace a national perspective without losing its distinctive sense of place.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED
Zoom link will be sent out the day before the event.
