Presidential historian Jon Meacham is this year's commencement speaker at Carthage. The day before--Saturday, May 26th--Meacham will give a public presentation centered around his new book, "The Soul of America."
Meacham argues that President Trump's demagogic assault on U.S. values will eventually be corrected with the aid of America's "better angels."
Meacham recently appeared on "Fresh Air." Here's the program.
The Saturday appearance at Carthage will take place in the Siebert Chapel beginning at 2. The event is free and open to the public.
