Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
Mendenhall Lecture – “The Heart and Soul of Democracy”
Tuesday, April 9 @ 7:30pm
Gobin Church @ DePauw University
According to Barber and Wilson-Hartgrove, America is facing a moral crisis, but it is not a new phenomenon. The divisions which have been exposed by culture wars and political battles over healthcare and immigration are deeply rooted. Their examination of the long history of moral resistance and Reconstruction in America suggests that a way forward has already been laid out: moral fusion organizing for a Third Reconstruction.
Following the free lecture, Barber and Wilson-Hartgrove will be available to sign copies of their books.
