What Are We Doing About Our Culture? McWhorter, Strossen and Shibley Are Back
The Philanthropy Roundtable brought John McWhorter (Columbia University), Nadine Strossen (New York Law School) and Robert Shibley (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education) back by popular demand! Each of them had signed a different statement in 2020 expressing concerns about the consequences of silencing opposing or unpopular views. In a conversation with Debi Ghate, the Roundtable’s Vice President of Strategy and Programs, they discussed the commonalities and differences, the nuances and complexities of the Harpers’ Letter, the Philadelphia Statement and the Liberty and Justice for All Statement. This time, we heard how their thinking has evolved since our last discussion, and how they are working to improve the issues we discussed.
