Engaging the World: Ty Seidule

Here’s a terrific interview with BG Ty Seidule.

The episode’s description reads, “Ty Seidule is the Chamberlain Fellow at Hamilton College, a New America Fellow, and was recently named to the Confederate Base Naming Commission. In 2015, his five-minute video lecture, ‘Was the Civil War About Slavery?’ became a social media sensation with more than 30 million views. He served in the U.S. Army for thirty-six years, retiring as a brigadier general in 2020, after teaching at West Point for two decades. Engaging the World: Leading the Conversation on the Significance of Race is a ten-part podcast series of informed and enriching dialogues to help us better understand our world – how we got here, who we are, and where we are going as a society. This series engages in conversations with scholars, artists, filmmakers, and activists to investigate racial inequality, systemic racism, racial terrorism, and racial justice and reconciliation. Through education, art, and storytelling, we can all learn to be allies and engage the world to help evolve to a place of compassion and social equity.”

    Hello, today I click on the link that is provided, and it took me to this address: https://heritagefuture.org/listen/281-ty-seidule
    However, I received the message “The page you’re looking for could not be found.” So I searched Google with the title of the program (Engaging the World: Leading the Conversation on the Significance of Race) I found this set of lectures from Chapman University that includes what (I assume) is the right interview.

    1. Thanks for letting me know about the link. I’ve updated it to this:
