Who are the new progressive leaders emerging to lead the post-Trump return of democracy in America? National political correspondent and award-winning author D.D. Guttenplan stepped up to introduce Town Hall audiences to the next wave of successful activists who are changing the course of American history. With insight from his book The Next Republic: The Rise of a New Radical Majority he shed light on the struggles faced by American democracy in recent years. Guttenplan highlighted key moments in American history that remain relevant to current events, and profiled individuals working to preserve and embody a new and hopeful spirit for democracy in our country. Join Guttenplan for a thorough cross-examination of democracy—the magnitude of its problems and the new radical figures who are creating great possibilities for its resurgence.

D.D. Guttenplan served as the lead Nation election correspondent throughout the 2015-16 election season, traveling across the country throughout the primary season and attending the major speeches and rallies of all the candidates. His first book, The Holocaust on Trial, was highly praised in The New Yorker as well as other publications, and his biography of I.F. Stone, American Radical: The Life and Times of I.F. Stone won the Sperber Prize for Biography.

Recorded live at The Summit by Town Hall Seattle on Sunday, October 14, 2018.
