Democracy Awakening: historian Heather Cox Richardson on the state of America

On Point host Meghna Chakrabarti moderated a conversation with historian Heather Cox Richardson about her new book, “Democracy Awakening: Notes on the State of America.” Following the phenomenal success of her newsletter “Letters from an American,” Richardson continues her mission to distill bleak headlines and wide swaths of America’s past into a coherent story. With her command of history and her calm, accessible prose, Richardson masterfully explains how our country got to where it is today and the steps we must take to preserve democracy.
