    One for the History Books: A Conversation with Ken Burns on a Turbulent 2020

    July 27, 2020

    Ken Burns, the Emmy-Award winning documentarian, is known for illuminating American life through renowned films including “Country Music,” “The Civil War,” “Jazz,” “The Statue of Liberty,” “The Vietnam War,” and “Baseball.” By chronicling seminal moments in our country’s past, he has provided context and perspective on many of the unprecedented cultural, political and racial challenges we face today. Burns has also created a web page – UNUM – to explore the intersection of current events and history.

    Does Ken Burns believe our nation is at a societal inflection point? And how much time must pass to reflect objectively on this tumultuous year?

    Join moderator Marvin Kalb in a conversation with Ken Burns via a live stream special event that will be presented on Monday, July 27 at 1 p.m. ET.
