Desk 88: Senator Sherrod Brown and Connie Schultz

Chicago Humanities Festival

Saturday, Nov 9, 2019 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Field Museum
In Desk 88, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown offers a unique and timely window into the history of the progressive movement, told through the stories of those who’ve occupied Brown’s desk in the Senate and the causes they championed. Former occupants include well-known figures such as George McGovern and Robert F. Kennedy, and lesser-known names like Glen Taylor—“The Singing Cowboy,” and staunch opponent of segregation. Senator Brown will be joined by his wife, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Connie Schultz, for a conversation on how the stories of the eight senators in Desk 88 can empower us all to fight for a more just world today.
