Council Connections: CBS Sunday Morning
Perhaps you saw the Council connections to the weekend’s CBS Sunday Morning program with Jane Pauley: One feature dealt with forgiveness and the other dealt with Fidel Castro.

Sunday Morning’s report on the documentary series The Secret Life of Muslims focused on Rais Bhuiyan, the only survivor of an anti-Muslim shooting spree in Dallas by White Supremacist Mark Stroman just days after 9/11. Bhuiyan, who tried to save his assailant from execution, has become a symbol of forgiveness and is the founder of the non-profit organization World Without Hate. He has occasionally spoken to Council programs and is a frequent Council classroom speaker.

On the same Sunday Morning program, Rice University History Professor Douglas Brinkley delivered an opinion piece about Cuba’s future after of the death of Fidel Castro. Brinkley, author of several books, is CNN’s Presidential Historian and was guest speaker for the Council’s 2016 International Educator of the Year Award Luncheon. See: The Bhuiyan segment and the Brinkley opinion piece.

Are you curious about money, history and intriguing personalities?
Put The Council's January 30 program on your calendar because all of those elements populate our speaker Sebastian Mallaby's latest book, The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Greenspan.

Not only has our speaker, the author and journalist Sebastian Mallaby, enjoyed a great review in The New York Times, but his work also earned a long commentary on the Brookings Institute site from Ben Bernanke, the man who followed Greenspan into the role of chair of the Federal Reserve Bank.

Just a coincidence, but Mallaby, a contributing columnist at The Washington Post, also is the Paul A. Volcker Senior Fellow for International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Volcker preceded Greenspan as the Fed chair.
