Judy Woodruff will deliver the Weil Lecture on American Citizenship, hosted by the Institute for the Arts and Humanities, on March 25, 2024 in Hill Hall’s Moeser Auditorium.
The lecture, titled “America at a Crossroads,” shares a title with Woodruff’s two-year reporting project that explores and seeks to understand the deep divisions throughout the country. Woodruff is the former anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour.
The Institute for the Arts and Humanities has hosted UNC’s Weil Lecture on American Citizenship since 2000.
Brothers Henry and Solomon Weil established the lecture in 1915 to widen the discussion of the concept of American Citizenship in the United States. Presidents Taft and Carter, Eleanor Roosevelt, Senators J. William Fulbright and Nancy Kassebaum, and Professor Lester Thurow are among the many distinguished Weil lecturers. Other recent speakers have been members of Congress, diplomats, political commentators and renowned scholars.
