Barden Forum Lecture | Rob Christensen, The Scott Family & Tar Heel Politics
October 9 @ 7:30 pm
Rob Christensen, Retired Political Columnist with The Raleigh News and Observer, will present the story of the Scott family and the era they dominated Tar Heel politics. Three generations of Scotts – W. Kerr Scott, Robert Scott, and Meg Scott Phipps – held statewide offices. This family led a populist and progressive movement strongly supported by rural North Carolinians. Mr. Christensen will speak about his historical account of the Scott family legacy, from his book, “The Rise and Fall of the Branchhead Boys”.
