Gray Brechin, The Living New Deal
The New Deal promised to lift Americans out of the Great Depression through an expansive federal public works program that offered a grand vision of what government could be. Recent scholarship offers new considerations of this period and illuminates New York City’s pivotal role. Explore the city's dramatic transformation during the New Deal with Gray Brechin, founder of The Living New Deal project, and 20th-century American historian Mason Williams. Following their presentations, Brechin and Williams will be joined by MCNY curator Sarah Seidman for a discussion. This event is co-sponsored with the Museum of the City of New York.
