April 30, 2015 "150 Years of Ideas from The Nation Magazine x PechaKucha"

2015 marks the 150th anniversary of The Nation, the oldest weekly magazine in the country. From groundbreaking investigative journalism, to cutting cultural commentary, to unmatched political analysis, The Nation has been at the forefront of American politics and culture since its inception by anti-slavery abolitionists just months after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Join us for an evening of reflection about what makes our country great and the many hurdles we have yet to overcome with the magazines that Harry Belafonte says "has brought to the table of human need a menu of truth."
