Connections: Filmmaker Ken Burns On Race In America

Ken Burns, the award-winning filmmaker, joins us to discuss a range of subjects. We talk about his latest work, and we preview his visit to the University of Rochester later this week.

Burns has been talking a lot about race in America in recent days, and we dig into that. And we ask him why he decided to break with his traditional nonpartisan stance to come out strongly against Donald Trump. Our guests:

  • Ken Burns, award-winning filmmaker
  • Paul Burgett, University of Rochester vice president and senior adviser to the president
