The experience takes your breath away. I am in Montgomery to give the commencement address at Huntingdon College on May 5, but today am visiting the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice. This monument to the victims of lynching stands in stark contrast to the Confederate memorials that populate the city.

On this 2018 Presidents Day Weekend, as we are experiencing the uproar of contemporary American politics, a focus on Abraham Lincoln can remind us of the values our greatest American president can shine on today’s tumult. It is not that he can answer the problems of climate change, but his integrity and attitude of respect for persons with whom we disagree, is so much needed today.

An intriguing episode in the life of Ulysses S. Grant that speaks to this question took place on a 4th of July in 1878.

April 27 will be Ulysses S. Grant’s 195th birthday. What might he wish to say to us in 2017? A major surprise in attempting to understand the presidency of Ulysses S. Grant was the discovery of his efforts to battle voter suppression.
