WMU-Cooley Law School to host virtual event Feb. 9

WMU-Cooley Law School’s Wellness Committee will host historian James Kratsas as he explores the momentous events that unfolded in America in 2020 during a virtual event, “It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times: America in 2020,” on Feb. 9.

America finds itself divided. While this has happened before in our history, the nation typically comes together to overcome a crisis like the COVID-19 virus. Throw in a contentious presidential election, the Black Lives Matter movement, and economic hardship caused by the pandemic and it’s a wonder we are hopeful at all. What can we expect moving forward? Will we rally and not allow distrust, fear and hatred to rule us? America is poised at a crossroad. We have been there before in difficult times and overcome that which threatens us.

Exploring the lessons of the past, Kratsas will present what was different about the United States in 2020 from previous crises and what has not changed. Although nobody can predict the future, there are many reasons our nation will endure.
