About the Event
THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED.
Please watch for a future date.
As Virginia and other states plan to reopen in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Future of America’s Past looks for lessons from history with their new short “A Public Calamity.” The short examines Richmond’s response to the 1918 flu pandemic — a global health crisis that killed more than 50 million people worldwide, and more Americans than all 20th- and 21st-century wars combined.
Join us for a Facebook Live discussion on June 10th at 7:00pm as show host Ed Ayers talks with local experts about the parallels between 1918 and today.
