Through History’s Lens / Clouded or Clear – Looking Back at the 2020 Election, presented by Hon. Charles B. Schudson

What happened? Who happened? Are we still counting votes? Are we in the courts? We’ve barely recovered … isn’t this the last thing we want to talk about? But we can’t stop – it’s so confusing, and interesting … and important! So trying to make some sense of it all, let’s get some help from history.

Through history’s lens – clouded or clear – let’s see what made a difference: voter suppression … foreign interference … climate change … immigration … electoral college … pandemic? With help from a presidential election historian, we’ll ask whether America has ever experienced a presidential election anything like this last one … whether this, indeed, may be our last one (and, if not, why so many were so worried that it might be). We’ll try to answer history’s questions: “Now (or once the votes are counted), where do we stand … and are we still standing?”
