Breakout #4: DREW GILPIN FAUST: THE EDUCATION OF AN EDUCATOR

By:

Before becoming an award-winning Civil War historian and the first woman president of Harvard University, DREW GILPIN FAUST grew up in conservative, segregated Virginia at a time when a privileged white girl was expected to adopt a willful blindness to the inequities of race and the constraints of gender, an acceptance of female subordination and racial hierarchy that she found intolerable and galvanizing. Faust will talk to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist ANDREA ELLIOTT about how, during the 1960s, she forged a path of her own—one that would eventually lead her to become a historian and educator deeply engaged with some of the most urgent moral issues of our, or any other, era.
