frankclinton.jpgTonight’s New York Public Library conversation between Bill Clinton and John Hope Franklin is sold out, but you’ll be able to catch the webcast starting at 7 p.m. Clinton and Franklin go way back; in 1997, the president appointed the historian to lead his initiative on race relations. The two will be discussing “how to destroy the color line that continues to divide our country,” and you can bet that conversation will turn to 90-year-old Franklin’s experiences fighting segregation and prejudice, which are chronicled in his forthcoming memoir, Mirror to America.
