We heard from journalists, academics and an author as they discussed President Trump's first year in office. Then we watched the President's State of the Union Address, followed by expert analysis and questions from the audience. 

We were pleased to host the following panelists for our conversation:

Conversation moderated by Jessica Yellin: An acclaimed journalist who served as the Chief White House Correspondent for CNN from 2011 to 2013
