      The Bonus March: How to Teach History with a Civics Lesson

      In 1932, World War I veterans boarded freight trains from Portland, Oregon, to Washington, DC, to lobby Congress for early payment of a bonus that was scheduled to be paid in 1945. On July 28th, 1932, the police, and later the military, put down a riot made up of nearly 60,000 Bonus Marchers. This webinar will show how to blend primary sources, historic narrative, and civics into an inquiry arc using the Bonus March.

      Presidential Power: Truman and the Steel Crisis

      During the Korean War, President Truman faced a dilemma. The steel industry mill owners and workers could not agree on wages and price controls. A strike seemed inevitable. Truman was concerned that a lack of steel during the Korean War would hinder the war effort. Truman reacted by seizing the steel mills and this led to a constitutional crisis. This event in American history involves all three branches of government and is a case study of presidential overreach.

      America was in poor health before COVID-19 appeared. Racism, marginalization, socioeconomic inequality—our failure to address these forces left us vulnerable to COVID-19 and the ensuing global health crisis it became. Had we tackled these challenges twenty years ago, after the outbreak of SARS, perhaps COVID-19 could have been quickly contained. Instead, we allowed our systems to deteriorate. Dr Sandro Galea, Dean at the Boston University School of Public Health, shows us what we need to do. He will be in conversation with WABE’s Rose Scott.

    • We Gather Together
      October 25, 2021

      Denise Kiernan, author of We Gather Together

      Denise Kiernan brings us a biography of an idea: gratitude, as a compelling human instinct and a global concept, more than just a mere holiday. Spanning centuries, “We Gather Together” is anchored amid the strife of the Civil War, and driven by the fascinating story of Sarah Josepha Hale, a widowed mother with no formal schooling who became one of the 19th century’s most influential tastemakers and who campaigned for decades to make real an annual day of thanks that we call Thanksgiving. Kiernan will be in conversation with author Kate Andersen Brower.
