Jon Meacham: a historical look at the future

Jon Meacham: A voice of reason and understanding in this historical moment.

When Americans want answers – they turn to Jon Meacham. A sought-out speaker and commentator, Jon Meacham tackles the big issues facing America, as seen on Real Time with Bill MaherCharlie Rose, and Morning Joe.

A presidential historian, author of Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush and the Pulitzer Prize-winning American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House, Jon Meacham's non-partisan analyses and lectures quite literally, speak to all sides.

Jon’s grasp of the character and temperament of America’s greatest leaders informs us in our big decisions, while his extensive knowledge of history and current events, politics and religion reminds us of just where we are – and where we may be headed.

Reflecting on last week’s events in Charlottesville, his recent TIME article, “American Hate, a History,” and New York Times op-ed, “Why Lee Should Go, and Washington Should Stay,” captures this historical moment.

Standing up for social justice

Actions of hate and violence are nothing new in America. But all across the country, people are standing up to right wrongs and speak out against bigotry and injustice. Author David Grann is one such voice.

ImageHis 2017 New York Times bestseller, Killers of the Flower Moon, brings to light the story of the Osage Indians, and how one of the most sinister crimes in American history connects to Native Americans’ continuing fight to control their land and resources.

Grann’s unearthing of one of America’s forgotten chapters reminds us of the importance of truth and standing up for the rights of others. This is our America, and this is our story through thick and thin.

Best-selling author of The Lost City of Z and staff writer for The New Yorker, David Grann is known for his extensively researched yet utterly irresistible stories. Called “Extraordinary” by TIME magazine, “Killers of the Flower Moon leaves the reader with a sense of injustice not truly avenged, and it’s no fault of the author — it’s American history.”
