Live, from New York! (pt. 2)

History Club teams up with Unfinished Live and Clubhouse for an in-person event on Sept. 24 in NYC

History Club returns next week with a special event live from New York City!

We’re thrilled to be participating in Unfinished Live, a two-day conference featuring technologists, journalists, thought leaders and artists examining the ethics of digital technology and decentralization. The conference is hosted by Emmy-nominated comedian and podcast host Baratunde Thurston.

The theme of the conference is decentralization. As such, our History Club event will be titled “Decentralizing the National Narrative.” We’ll explore whether tech, social media and legacy media are unwinding a tidier narrative of U.S. history we may have once told ourselves, and ask what the consequences of such an unraveling might be.
