E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post and Ross Douthat of the New York Times will reflect on the origins of the “ideal of the American Dream” as well as explore the different ways conservatives and liberals imagine the future of the dream.  ABC News correspondent Ann Compton will moderate the conversation.  

Hosted by the Library’s John W. Kluge Center, in conjunction with the Daniel K. Inouye Institute, this is the fourth in a five-year series designed to celebrate the legacy and principles of the late Honorable Daniel K. Inouye, who served as Hawaii’s first U.S. representative and then as U.S. senator for nearly half a century. Highlighting the importance Inouye placed on bipartisanship and moral courage, each lecture brings together voices from diverse backgrounds.
