In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., Hugh Taft-Morales explores “somebodyness” – a term that King used to ground his dedication to advancing civil and human rights. How is this concept similar to, and different from, other approaches to individual human beings?
Four panelists will address questions such as: What are the best decisions I made in my life? and What one choice would I change, if I could do it over again?
Join Hugh Taft-Morales for a discussion of Chapters 13-16 and the Epilogue of These Truths: A History of the United States by Jill Lapore. This final section covers selected historical themes between 1946-2016.

How urgent are the crises we face? How radical should our responses be? What do different answers to these questions do to the cohesion of communities? How should we react to extremism expressed by those who feel their very survival is threatened?
