With Kenneth D. Ackerman, a writer and attorney in Washington, D.C.
This illustrated lecture tells the story of Leon Trotsky’s sojourn in New York City on the eve of the Russian Revolution in 1917. It presents a portrait not only of a towering yet all-too-human political figure on the cusp of history, but also of the city itself at a special moment in our collective memory.
