Six years ago, Danielle Allen came on the Diane Rehm Show to discuss her book, “Our Declaration.” It’s about teaching the Declaration of Independence to adult night school students and why she thinks the the text says as much about equality as it does about independence.
Diane has often rebroadcast that interview on the 4th of July, but this year, there seemed so much more to say.
Danielle Allen joins Diane now to talk about America’s response to the pandemic and how the U.S. can strengthen its democracy, which she calls fragile, but not broken.
Allen is director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University where she spearheads Harvard’s COVID-19 response initiative, which recently published “The Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience,” a comprehensive plan for reopening the U.S. economy.
