We discuss Reconstruction with Dr. Eddie S. Glaude, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor and chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University and New York Times bestselling author. He is also the host of the podcast History is US. Key moments in history Glaude and guests will explore include: the collapse of Reconstruction and its aftermath; the emergence of Jim Crow laws and the extralegal violence that made them the law of the land; the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama; the Selma march in 1965 and the ideological debates that followed; the black freedom struggle of the mid-twentieth century and how it led to the emergence of white backlash; debates around voting rights, immigration, and police reform; and more.
History is US is directed and produced by C13Original Studios, and executive produced by Glaude, Meacham, and Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13
