America in the World War I era was a tinderbox: a time of fierce debate over labor rights, free speech, and racial equality. In an era marked by vigilanteism spurred on by the government, citizen turned against citizen in the war over what it means to be American. Lynchings, suppression of the press, and violence against conscientious objectors marred our ideals of democracy. A colorful cast of characters, from Woodrow Wilson to Emma Goldman and J. Edgar Hoover joined in the fray.

Join author Adam Hochschild for a conversation on this little-known era of American history whose legacy is still felt with us today. Meeting is in-person and the author will join us virtually.
