CONTEXT: Conversations at Poly Prep

Joseph Dana Allen Library
Our first speaker for the academic year in the Context series is Dr. Nicholas Buccola on November 14, 5 - 7 PM. Dr. Buccola is the author of The Fire Is Upon Us: James Baldwin, William F. Buckley, Jr., and the Debate over Race in America. 

Dr. Nicholas Buccola 
"… brilliantly illuminates the American dilemma of race in the context of the early sixties, as well as now. As historian and political analyst, he deftly captures these two iconic wordsmiths at the peak of their divergent powers. How forcefully the past is past, but also so present in the hands of a superb scholar."―David W. Blight, Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom
