P&P Live! : Michael Signer - Cry Havoc: Charlottesville and American Democracy Under Siege

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 17, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series.

Signer, a public scholar, executive, and practicing attorney, served as mayor of Charlottesville from 2016 to 2018. His detailed account of the August 2017 Unite the Right rally presents a comprehensive picture of the shocking events from the lead-up to the demonstrations through the weekend itself and the long aftermath. His unparalleled analysis includes illumination of key questions we need to consider going forward, such as how to accommodate both free speech and public order; how to maintain civility—at the very least—in a time of rising extremism; how to use our public memorials to address systemic racism; and how to mitigate growing alienation from institutions and even democracy itself.
