Part of 2021 Salons at Stowe

A part of the Telling Our Nation’s Story initiative, the Stowe Center’s 2021 Salon series aims to engage communities throughout the country in direct, open-ended, and inclusive conversations about the complex and always evolving American story, and to face the narratives that divide us in pursuit of the values that unite us.

The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center presents these salons in collaboration with Our Common Purpose: Reinventing American Democracy for the 21st Century and the Commission on The Practice Of Democratic Citizenship, A Project Of The American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Jonathan Cohen joins to introduce Our Common Purpose, the final report of the Academy’s Commission.
