History As It Happens

Jan 12, 2021

Journalists write the first draft of history. They also view our present times through the prism of the past. While it seems certain that future historians will consider the events of this era of American history extraordinary, we need not wait however many years for the arrival of their books before trying to make sense of our current controversies. The recent past can shed fresh light on today’s events.  

‘History As It Happens’ reports the news in historical context. ‘History As It Happens’ debuts January 19, 2021, and is hosted by Martin Di Caro, an award-winning broadcast journalist and history enthusiast. 

As Faulkner put it, the past is never dead. It’s not even past.
