In today’s highly-charged political atmosphere, many Americans are searching for a common ground where they can meet as a first step to hearing, appreciating and understanding values in America. Tulane/Aspen Institute Values in America Speaker Series will feature a variety of speakers who give voice to the nuanced and stimulating topic of values in America.
The second event in this series will feature Pulitzer Prize winner and historian Annette Gordon-Reed. She and Walter Isaacson will discuss how we judge Thomas Jefferson, and other important historical figures, in light of today’s values. A Q&A will follow the discussion, and there will be a post-event reception.
