Program 19: A Vital Progressivism

Donald L. Miller with Waldo E. Martin, Jr., and Virginia Scharff.


Miller: The Progressive Era: what was it? Nobody knew they were living in a thing called the Progressive Age, you know. I mean, it's a constructed story.

Martin: I'm really interested in trying to put a different face on the period, trying to get a sense of America that is defining itself in a different way. African Americans, Mexican Americans, to some extent Native Americans -- understand the strategies that they evolved which enabled them to persist and to transcend some really awful kinds of experiences.

Miller: Today on A Biography of America, "A Vital Progressivism."
