Our Declaration: An Evening With Dr. Danielle Allen
Please join us virtually as we welcome our very special guest Dr. Danielle Allen, Harvard University Professor, classicist, and political scientist, and author of Our Declaration, a book about this critical moment in the future of building a multiracial democracy. At a time when the future of American democracy is under threat from across the political spectrum and a disturbingly high number of citizens seem to no longer believe in the American project, Dr. Allen’s body of work thrillingly affirms the continuing relevance of America’s founding text, ultimately revealing what democracy actually means and what it asks of us. Part democracy’s orator and part its master mechanic, Dr. Allen is uniquely equipped to guide us to the other side of our current crisis of faith in democracy. This important conversation is offered in partnership with The Village Square and will be facilitated by Florida Humanities Executive Director, Dr. Nashid Madyun.
We thank The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their generous support of this program and the Pulitzer Prizes for their partnership.
Date/time: September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presented By:Dr. Danielle Allen, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University and Dr. Nashid Madyun, Executive Director, Florida Humanities
