misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Red Spies and Lavender Lads: McCarthyism, Communism, and Morality Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by Hamish Lutris, Associate Professor of History at Capital Community College.

McCarthyism was part of a phenomenon that affected thousands. The Red Scare, as it was called, brought to light some of America's deepest fears of foreign agents and domestic traitors. But McCarthyism also targeted America's morality. The Lavender Scare investigated gays in the government, firing tens of thousands of American government workers as threats to national security because of their sexual orientation. This talk will focus on McCarthy and McCarthyism in the 1950s, how America's political and social foundation was challenged by a new sense of morality, and how the nation reacted to that challenge.  Snow date: Tuesday, February 28th.
