CANCELLED: 6:30-8 p.m. Vermont Humanities Council Presentation: The Red Scare in the Green Mountains

October 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What happened in Vermont when the anti-communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Rick Winston, author of “Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era” explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time. Come listen to several fascinating stories that took place in the Green Mountains during this time.
This presentation is presented to you through the Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau and is free to the public.
Sign up required. Call (802) 893-4644 to register. Masks are required.
