Shadow Agendas, Long Reckonings: Legacies of American Foreign Policy, at Home and Abroad promotional graphic

Join us Sept. 26 for a fascinating discussion with George Black, Anne Nelson and Elliott Woods. All three spent years as frontline journalists before turning from the heat of conflict to writing about history and policy and the invisible forces that determine which conflicts our country enters and on which side. Now, they are engaged in long-term investigation and on-the-ground reporting with the goal of uncovering the roots of our interventions abroad—from Vietnam to Central America to the Middle East—and how those narratives transformed into the anger and conspiracy theories that now divide us domestically.

Learn more about the speakers:

George Black is the author of eight books, including The Long Reckoning: A Story of War, Peace, and Redemption in Vietnam (Knopf, 2023) about the lingering physical effects of Agent Orange on the people and the environment of Vietnam. https://www.george-black.net

Anne Nelson is the author of Shadow Network: Media, Money, and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right (Bloomsbury, 2019). She covered wars in Central America, especially in El Salvador and Guatemala, before turning to investigating right-wing influences on those conflicts and political division at home. https://anne-nelson.com

Elliott Woods is the creator of Third Squad, this year’s Edward R. Murrow Award winner for best podcast. He reported from Iraq (where he also served in the Army National Guard) and Afghanistan before turning to writing about veterans’ affairs and, more recently, the role of the oil and gas industry on American foreign policy. https://www.elliottwoods.com
