Join New York Times columnist Bret Stephens for this unique opportunity to examine the art of political persuasion.

From Lincoln to Trump: How do great leaders use the power of the spoken and written word to stir the better angels of our nature? And how do dangerous leaders make use of demagoguery to arouse our worst instincts? Referencing historical documents such as The Gettysburg Address and great speeches, this Master Class will explore history past and present.
