Drew Gilpin Faust, President Emerita of Harvard University, joins us for a special evening reflecting on her instant New York Times bestselling memoir, Necessary Trouble: Growing Up at Midcentury. Professor Faust reflects on the formative experiences of her youth during the turbulence of the 1950s and 60s – including her time as a student at Concord Academy – that shaped her as a civil rights activist, historian of the South, and first female president of Harvard University.
Joining Professor Faust in conversation is Tomiko Brown-Nagin, Dean of Harvard Radcliffe Institute, Daniel P.S. Paul Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard Law School, and professor of history in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
