    • The Contagion Next Time

      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

      Monday, Nov. 8 at 7pm

      Denise Kiernan, author of We Gather Together

      Zoom link:

      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.
