About

Former Attorney General Eric Holder provides a fascinating insight to the challenges our country has and does face, as well as an insider's account of his storied career in the Obama White House. Mr. Holder will discuss his first book, Our Unfinished March: The Violent Past and Imperiled Future of the Vote-A History, a Crisis, a Plan (May 2022). Co-authored with Sam Koppelman, Our Unfinished March is a dramatic history of the vote in America and an urgent summons to protect and perfect our democracy.

Before the show on May 16, Mr. Holder will offer a few words about his book and the importance of the suffrage efforts in history and today. Following this short talk, Mr. Holder will be available to meet VIP ticket holders and take photos. All VIP ticket holders will receive a signed copy of Mr. Holder’s book and one complimentary glass of wine. VIP ticket holders should arrive at the Flynn Space entrance (147 Main Street) and enter Flynn Space at 5:15 pm.

New Civic Literacy Grant

The AOE is offering a competitive Civic Literacy Grant to Supervisory Unions/Supervisory Districts (SUs/SDs) to complement and/or amplify their existing secondary school curricula by providing students an innovative learning opportunity on the history and principles of U.S. constitutional democracy as evidenced through voting. The AOE is competing funds to support schools who want to purchase, as part of curricula to support civic literacy, Our Unfinished March by former United States Attorney General Eric Holder, and have their students participate in an event where they will hear from and talk with Mr. Holder at the Flynn Center for Arts on May 16, 2023. This opportunity highlights the importance of literacy within the social studies, and connected literacies such as civic, media, ethical and equity literacy as well as engages students in contemporary texts to build contextual knowledge. The AOE will provide supplemental learning materials aligned to the College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards to support this learning opportunity. Civic Literacy Grant Application >
