In this year’s annual Gail Koppman American History endowed lecture, David Rubenstein takes an introspective look at what it means to be American in his latest book, The American Experiment. Diversity is a foundational element of the United States of America, reflected in culture, religion, political views, and ideas. The bringing together of fifty individual states and of people from all ethnicities forms the basis of what it means to be American, a nationality built on the belief in freedom as a right, regardless of background. Through conversations with some of the most influential thought-leaders of our time, Rubenstein explores the idea of “America as a grand experiment in democracy,” gleaning insight from the likes of Madeleine Albright, Ken Burns, and John Meacham, attempting to define “what America is” and “what it can be.”

David Rubenstein is chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations as well as co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group private equity firm. He is the New York Times bestselling author of How to Lead and The American Story. He also hosts The David Rubenstein Show on Bloomberg TV and PBS. Before forming The Carlyle Group, Rubenstein was a practicing lawyer in Washington, D.C. His experience also includes serving as chief counsel to a subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as board membership of several philanthropic organizations. He is a graduate of Duke University and the University of Chicago Law School.
