On Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. EDT, the Roosevelt Library will present “Mapping the New Deal”: A Conversation with Richard Walker. FDR Library Acting Director William Harris will lead the discussion with Richard Walker, the Director of the Living New Deal Project. This live, virtual event will be streamed to the Library’s official YouTube, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Q&A in the comments/chat following the presentation.
The mission of the Living New Deal is three-fold: research, presentation and education. It begins with the historical work of uncovering the immense riches of New Deal public works. That research is then made available to all through digital mapping (livingnewdeal.org/map) and a website that serves as a clearinghouse for information on the New Deal. And, finally, the information gained from their work is disseminated as widely as possible through newsletters, social media, written media, interviews, lectures and other public events.
