Kudos to Chad Pearson for Appearance on C-Span
Dr. Chad Pearson, an instructor in the UAH history department and the PASS (Peer Assisted Study Session) coordinator for UAH's Student Success Center, participated in a round table discussion at the 2011 American Historical Association conference in Boston on Beverly Gage's The Day Wall Street Exploded: A Story of America in Its First Age of Terror (Oxford University Press, USA, 2009). Several panelists responded to the book, which focuses on the 1920 Wall Street bombing in order to provide a broader analysis of the history of terrorism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chad's presentation discussed the ways in which Gage's book helps us understand an era shaped by employer-led attacks on labor unions and left-wing activists.
C-Span recorded the session.
Good work, Chad!
