Here is a video from 1958. It’s from the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas, black and white, encrypted on a page I couldn’t enlarge. Couldn’t find a purloined copy on YouTube either, so it has the sense of being a treasured bit of film.
Reinhold Niebuhr in conversation with Mike Wallace. Obama’s favorite theologian, James’ Comey’s secret twitter handle, author of the Serenity Prayer, and public intellectual back when that wasn’t an oxymoron, Niebuhr addresses all the hot button issues of his day, and it turns out, our own as well.
I’m posting this as pure nostalgia. Grown-ups talking.
