Joe Scarborough – former Republican congressman and the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe – and co-host Mika Brzezinski will share a nuanced and surprising examination of the unexpected rise and what Scarborough describes as the “self-inflicted fall of the Republican Party.”
On the heels of the release of his book, The Right Path, Scarborough joins Vanderbilt Distinguished Visiting Professor Jon Meacham and Chancellor Nicholas Zeppos for a conversation that looks back at the conservative but pragmatic leadership of Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan and reminds us of the national disillusionment that set in after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans.
*Parking is available in the 25th Avenue Garage, located near the intersection of 25th and Highland avenues. Please use the 25th Avenue entrance and park on the rooftop level. Free round-trip shuttle service to Langford Auditorium will be available from the bus shelter on Highland Avenue, just outside of the garage.
