    Name: The Founders and Us
    Date: March 26, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    In his latest book, American Dialogue:  The Founders and Us, historian Joseph Ellis looks back to the American founding for wisdom from Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and Washington. Join us as Ellis discusses what the words “the pursuit of happiness” and “we the people” meant then, and what do they mean now? How can the Founders help us frame the arguments we need to have about race, economic inequality, jurisprudence, and foreign policy? As the title suggests, and the Founders knew, argument itself is the answer.
