Join the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs for a conversation about Hubert Humphrey's time as a graduate student at LSU in 1938-40 and its profound influence on his views on civil rights. Manship School professor Robert Mann and Columbia University professor Samuel Freedman will navigate into Humphrey’s experiences during a challenging racial climate in Louisiana. The conversation will draw an intertextuality between Freedman’s book Into the Bright Sunshine (2023) and Mann’s When Freedom Would Triumph (2006), where Humphrey is a pivotal figure.
