Footage from "Civility and American Democracy: A National Forum," produced by The Center for Civil Discourse and held on February 17, 2012 at UMass Boston.
Topic for this session: Is civility really as American as apple pie? What about American individualism and self expression, the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement? Is incivility an ineluctable element of American-style democracy? Can civility accommodate political change and facilitate social progress? This panel raises fundamental questions about civility and American democracy.
