On this episode we revisit segments that use history to tell the story. Mike Wallace of the Graduate Center’s Gotham Center walks us through the history of New York City activism; Barry Rosen, now retired from BMCC, shares his experience being one of the 52 Iranian hostages of 1979; we explore the history of D.A.R., the Daughters of the American Revolution; and Baruch College’s Abby Anderton tells us how Beethoven’s music was used by the Nazi regime in the 1930s and 1940s, and then by a recovering Germany after that.
