Ken Burns: Our Democracy Challenged

Saturday, April 6, 2024
10:00 am12:00 pm
Ken Burns speaks on stage at the Majestic Theater, 2023


From its inception, American democracy has been a fragile experiment – government of the people, by the people, for the people – when many of the people were excluded from the formula. Both internal and external forces have challenged the country’s commitment to freedom and equality. From the pro-slavery secessionists of 1860, to Louisiana’s populist demagogue Huey Long, to Charles Lindbergh’s Nazi sympathies, American democracy has had to withstand numerous challenges, as we do today. This event features a live conversation with Ken Burns and co-producer Sarah Botstein.

$30/General Admission
