Reconstruction: America After the Civil War

Recording: Reconstruction: America After the Civil War, Mar 6, 2019

Explore how one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented chapters in American history — the transformative years following the Civil War — still haunt the country, more than 150 years later. In this candid conversation PBS leaders will provide educators with the framework to discuss the historical, sociological and political factors that lead us to our current day, as well as the challenge we still face as a nation to live up to our founding ideals of democracy, freedom and equality for all.
