November 23, 2017: What Unites Us

While there are plenty of issues that divide us as the presidential election shows, a tour through the chapters of New York’s history proves there is also much that brings us together. We looked at Civil Rights, labor rights, women’s rights, abolition and more on this special presentation of Connect: NY – What Unites Us. Our panel of guests includes:

Libby Post, Founder of Empire State Pride Agenda
Bruce Dearstyne, Author of The Spirit of New York; Former Program Director of NYS Archives
Betty Bayer, Board Member of National Women’s Hall of Fame; Professor of Women’s Studies at Hobart and William Smith
Brendan Mills, Site Manager and Curator at John Brown Farm Historic Site
Yusuf Abdul Qadir, director of the Central New York chapter of the Civil Liberties Union
