Join us for the next Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture, when former Washington Post Executive Editor and Author Martin “Marty” Baron will join veteran newspaper publisher Walter E. Hussman, Jr. in conversation at the Clinton Presidential Center. The pair will discuss Baron’s new book, “Collision of Power: Trump, Bezos, and the Washington Post,” an insider view of the Washington Post’s evolution from a family-controlled business to a Jeff Bezos enterprise. Just a few years after this transition, Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.

Archivists John Keller and Herbert Ragan will provide insight on this topic in a lively discussion.
