Orlando Patterson

Part of a new American Forum special series, What Now? Dialogues on Race in America

Television Broadcast: June 7, 2015

National Book Award winner ORLANDO PATTERSON, one of the nation’s leading sociologists, takes on a long-running debate over the causes of economic distress for inner-city America. Is it centuries of racism and discrimination against African Americans? Is it a failure of government policy since the Civil Rights movement? Or as New York magazine recently asked: does the real problem lie in “what black communities are doing to themselves”?  In his new book, The Cultural Matrix: Understanding Black Youth, Patterson seeks to unravel a uniquely American paradox: the socioeconomic crisis, segregation, and social isolation of disadvantaged black youth, on one hand, and their extraordinary integration and prominence in popular culture on the other. Patterson is the John Cowles Professor of Sociology at Harvard University and the author of Slavery and Social Death: A Comparative Study and The Ordeal of Integration: Progress and Resentment in America’s “Racial” Crisis. He has served as a special advisor for social policy and development to Prime Minister Michael Manley of Jamaica and is a founding member of Cultural Survival, one of the leading advocacy groups for the rights of indigenous peoples. His columns have appeared in Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, and the Washington Post. He is the recipient of many awards, including the National Book Award for Non-Fiction, the Ralph Bunche Award for the best book on pluralism, and the Order of Distinction by the Government of Jamaica. A book signing will follow his Forum.  Photo Credit: Stu Rosner

Part of a new American Forum special series in Spring 2015 What Now? Dialogues on Race in America

Television Broadcast: May 10, 2014

In his most recent book, Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America, demographer WILLIAM H. FREY interprets and expounds on the dramatic growth of minority populations in the United States. He finds that without these expanding groups, America could face a bleak future: this new generation of young minorities, who are having children at a faster rate than whites, is infusing our aging labor force with vitality and innovation. Frey, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, is known for his research on urban populations, migration, immigration, race, aging, political demographics, and his expertise on the U.S. Census. He was the first to predict that 2011 would be the first year in which more minority babies than white babies were born.

The Politics of High Tech Societies

Lily Geismer

April 10, 2015, 12:30PM

Lily Geismer

Since World War II, U.S. metropolitan areas have been transformed by the emergence of a high-tech economy. From Silicon Valley to Massachusetts’s Route 128 corridor, these changes have reshaped the political identity and behavior of the communities that form the core of the new knowledge-based economy. Connected as much by professional identity and national and global networks as by commitment to place, the knowledge workers who occupy these high-tech spaces have become increasingly significant for American politics. On Friday, April 10 at 12:30 pm, the Miller Center’s GREAT ISSUES program will explore these issues through a discussion of Don’t Blame Us: Suburban Liberals and the Transformation of the Democratic Party by former Miller Center National Fellow LILY GEISMER. Don’t Blame Us explores how knowledge workers in the high-tech spaces of the Route 128 corridor helped reorient the Democratic Party towards a new suburban liberalism during the 1970s and 1980s. Geismer argues that rather than being an exception, these high-tech Massachusetts liberals were representative of trends in metropolitan areas around the country that have shaped American politics ever since.

As the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon and the 20th anniversary of U.S. diplomatic recognition of Vietnam approach, MARC SELVERSTONE, KEN HUGHES, and BRANTLY WOMACK, three Miller Center experts, will examine the evolution of the U.S.-Vietnam relationship from the 1950s to the present. The panel will consider three questions: how did the U.S. become embroiled in the conflict, how did it extricate itself, and how did it reengage – economically, politically, and culturally – with Vietnam, particularly in the context of the rise of China? Panelists will also consider lessons that the Vietnam experience may offer for ongoing American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as for potential involvement in other hotspots.

With the release by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence of a major study of the CIA’s detention and interrogation practices, Americans have been forced to confront some disturbing facts. It is clear that practices most Americans would condemn have been used in secret by our intelligence agencies to pursue information in America’s on-going conflict with radical Islam. To debate the significance of the Senate’s findings and to place them into broad historical context, the GREAT ISSUES Series will host a public conversation with RICHARD IMMERMAN, FREDERICK HITZ, and BENJAMIN WITTES, three experts on the matter.

Drawing on a wealth of oral interviews collected by activist and politician JULIAN BOND and historian PHYLLIS LEFFLER, the new book Black Leaders on Leadership uses the lives of prominent African Americans from all sectors of society to trace the contours of black leadership in America. The interviews include accounts from a wide variety of figures such as John Lewis, Clarence Thomas, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Vernon Jordan, Angela Davis, Amiri Baraka, and many more. These individual and collective memories form a genealogy of social and cultural identity, demonstrating how leadership emerges from historical struggle rooted in the promise of a brighter future and providing valuable insights into the intractable disparities of race in America.

The History of Capitalism

Louis Hyman, Julia Ott

January 30, 2015, 12:30PM

Louis HymanJulia Ott

After decades of neglect, the history of capitalism has recently become a central focus of scholarly attention. Prompted in part by the economic crisis, a new generation of historians has explored the role of capitalism in society, probing relationships between financial instruments and institutions and actors ranging from business owners and financiers to workers. The field as a whole emphasizes that no understanding of U.S. history can be complete without rigorous attention to the role of capitalism. On January 30, 2015, the Miller Center’s GREAT ISSUES program will feature two leading historians of capitalism: JULIA OTT, associate professor of history at the New School, and LOUIS HYMAN, assistant professor of history at Cornell University. Ott and Hyman will present a “state of the field” assessment of the history of capitalism, highlighting current and future developments in this emerging area of innovative historical scholarship.

Daniel BolgerJohn Nagl

Part of a new American Forum special series in Spring 2015: The Aftermath of the Endless War

Over a 35-year career, DANIEL BOLGER rose through the army infantry to become a three-star general, commanding in both theaters of the U.S. campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. His military awards include five Bronze Star medals and the Combat Action Badge. In his new book, Why We Lost: A General’s Inside Account of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, Bolger offers a unique assessment of these wars, from 9/11 to the final withdrawal from the region. His book makes the case that in Iraq and in Afghanistan, we lost—but we didn’t have to. JOHN NAGL is a retired lieutenant colonel of the U.S. Army. When he was an army tank commander in the first Gulf War of 1991, he was an early convert to the view that America’s greatest future threats would come from asymmetric warfare—guerrillas, terrorists, and insurgents. The result would become the bible of the counterinsurgency movement: his book called Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife. Nagl’s new memoir, Knife Fights: A Memoir of Modern War in Theory and Practice, is an education in modern war—in theory, in practice, and in the often tortured relationship between the two.

Immigration Crisis and Reform

Adam Goodman

Because of technical difficulties, we will not be able to live stream this program online. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

The history of immigration policy provides the focus of the first GREAT ISSUES event of the spring 2015 semester. Current Miller Center National Fellow ADAM GOODMAN (University of Pennsylvania) will discuss “Operation Wetback,” a 1954 U.S. government effort to encourage – or force – undocumented immigrants to leave the country. Goodman argues that “Operation Wetback” represents the deep roots of modern “self-deportation” policies that rely on massive publicity campaigns and intimidation. Through such mechanisms, the state maintains a strong influence over what is claimed to be a "voluntary" act. The event will provide critical historical context that is often missing from current debates over immigration reform.
