Walter Johnson will be joining us virtually to talk about his book, The Broken Heart of America. From Lewis and Clark’s 1804 expedition to the notorious 1857 Dred Scott decision, to the 2014 uprising in Ferguson, American history has been made in St. Louis. As acclaimed historian Walter Johnson shows in The Broken Heart of America, the city exemplifies how imperialism, racism, and capitalism have persistently entwined to corrupt the nation’s past.
