History Behind the Headlines: Presidential Records Act
April 4 at 3:30 p.m. ET
Moderator: Peniel E. Joseph, associate dean for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion; professor of public affairs; Barbara Jordan Chair in Ethics and Political Values; and founding director, Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at the University of Texas at Austin
Panelists: Nicole Hemmer, director of the Rogers Center for the American Presidency and associate professor of history at Vanderbilt University, Timothy Naftali, director of the NYU undergraduate public policy program, clinical associate professor of history and public service, and founding director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, and Trudy Huskamp Peterson, certified archivist and former acting archivist of the United States. 
This panel, organized by the AHA and the Society of American Archivists, will bring together four leading scholars to put recent events surrounding presidential records in historical context. Why is the FBI raiding residences of former presidents and vice presidents? Does any of this matter to anyone other than archivists and historians?
