In the K/Now: Politics Today: Red, Purple & Blue

We are a little more than one year out from the 2012 national elections. The nation is mired in an economic moat, our troops are still at war, and Washington is in gridlock. At a time when we should be coming together, why is the nation in such a deep divide? Join us for a panel discussion where we pick apart politics, chronicle the political past, and ask what our leaders and voters can do now to reach true and meaningful compromise. Panelists will include Michael Mezey, Professor of Political Science at DePaul University, and other journalists and political experts.

Journalist Laura Washington moderates this monthly series that explores contemporary issues affecting life in Chicago.
