The Forum Network is a collaboration of PBS and NPR, bringing together audio and video lectures online for free. The site contains hundreds of lectures, which visitors can search through by topic, series, and speaker. Searching for content is both exciting and daunting, so for this post, we highlight just five series from the site, and just three lectures from each of these series. Do note some familiar names below, including Eric Foner, Jill Lepore, and James M. McPherson.

The Forum Network offers quite a few collections of lectures organized around a theme. Here are a series that may be of interest to historians.
Forum Network Slavery

Forum Network Lincoln

Forum Network Civil War
