How the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant was Invented - and Led to Donald Trump

Winter Weekend 2019, 

One year out from the 2020 Presidential election, Churchwell examines the emergence of the idea of White Anglo-Saxon American Protestantism in 20th-century America, and the unlikely roots of the Ku Klux Klan. She is the author of Behold, America: A History of America First and the American Dream, The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe, and Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby. Chaired by Oliver Bullough
