FDU wraps-up 2016-2017 NJ Speakers Series with Jon Meacham

Wrapping-up the 2016-2017 New Jersey Speakers Series on April 20 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark, FDU President Christopher A. Capuano thanked subscribers of the series for a successful season. He said, “We began this season with a great presentation by Rita Moreno and tonight we conclude with what I know will be a thought-provoking discussion with the eminent historian Jon Meacham. In between, we enjoyed incredible insights from the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, Gen. Martin Dempsey and journalist Ted Koppel. We laughed with comedian John Cleese and we broke down the challenging subject of racism in America with an illustrious panel group.”
