Location: Sears Recital Hall

Professor Bill Trollinger presents:
As the guns went silent in western Europe on November 11, 1918, a polarizing and often violent culture war broke out in the United States over race and religion. The Ku Klux Klan epitomized this conflict, and while the organization is now a shadow of its former self, the culture war -- with its intolerance and hatred -- continues to this day.

This event is sponsored by the Alumni Chair in Humanities in commemoration of the centenary of World War I.
