Kiran is speaking at
Based on historian Jon Meacham’s bestseller, the 2020 HBO documentary The Soul of America explores pivotal historical events such as the women’s suffrage movement, the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, McCarthyism, and the struggle to pass Civil Rights legislation in the 1960s. The film recognizes forces of hatred and division as recurring themes in American life, but ultimately gives hope that the lessons of the past may bring the nation closer to achieving its democratic ideals.
The panel will feature legal scholars, advocates, and practitioners, as they reflect on our current critical moment in history, and the themes of nativism, xenophobia, racism, isolationism, and hostility towards others that have occurred throughout history.
Presented in collaboration with Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), Stop Repeating History and Kunhardt Film Foundation. Link to documentary is available upon registration.
