Revisiting the Great Society: The Role of Government from FDR and LBJ to Today was a two-day symposium that offered an in-depth examination of the domestic side of the Johnson presidency. Featuring a distinguished roster of scholars and policymakers alike, the symposium located the LBJ presidency in historical perspective – drawing on lessons from FDR’s New Deal – and provided an ideal forum to discuss implications for our current leadership.

The two-day Symposium consisted of a one-day public program followed by a one-day academic conference. The Day 1 – March 14th 2012 – Public Program at The Kaye Playhouse was open to the public with advance registration.  The Day 2 – March 15th 2012 Academic Conference at the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College was by invitation only.
