What you'll learn in this history lesson:

The year 1919 witnessed some of the most violent and far-reaching developments in modern U.S. history. A massive wave of labor strikes mobilized a quarter of all American workers that spring, but signalled an end to union gains for at least the next decade. At the same time, a string of bloody race riots involving black veterans, migrants, and homeowners in the North and South contributed to the growth of a second KKK and 1920s nativism.  And the infamous "Palmer Raids" (organized by a twenty-four-year old J. Edgar Hoover, under President Wilson's command) led to the almost wholesale deportation of the Left, and created the basis for the later FBI's secret police. In short, the Progressive Era came to an end.

In this conversation, presented with CUNY’s Gotham Center for New York City History, four historians reflect on that tumultuous year in NYC and beyond: Steve Jaffe, curator of MCNY's City of Workers, City of Struggle exhibition, talks about the wave of labor actions that marked that year, including NYC's actors union strike; Shannon King of Worcester College talks about black-white relations in NYC leading up to 1919 and the impact of the “Red Summer”; Beverly Gage of Yale talks about Hoover and the origins of and the origins of modern domestic surveillance; and Vivian Gornick talks about the effect of the crackdown on the Left in the years that followed. Moderated by historian Ted Widmer.
