 CTHumanities | June 19, 2020

Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, and Lonnie Bunch, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, discuss the future of their institutions and how they remain accessible and relevant during a period of global pandemic coupled with nationwide protests against injustice.

“I find hope in history, not always optimism, but hope in history,” says Lonnie Bunch. “The hope comes from sometimes seeing that positive things did come out of very negative situations,” adds Dr. Carla Hayden.
