On February 17th, 2012, a group of leading scholars and journalists — including Ellen Goodman (recipient of Colby’s Elijah Parish Lovejoy award), Joe Klein, Randall Kennedy and Jill Lepore — gathered at the University of Massachusetts-Boston for a forum on Civility and American Democracy to discuss the role civility plays in American politics. The event was moderated by Tom Ashbrook, award-winning journalist and host of NPR’s On Point.

If you were unable to attend the event in Boston or the live webcast at Colby hosted by the Goldfarb Center, you can now watch the forum sessions online.
