Professor of History Emeritus at Hofstra University and columnist for Blank Slate Media, Michael D’Innocenzo offered a lecture at Temple Emanuel’s Friday night service.

The talk, entitled, “Beyond Citizens’ Discontents: Finding Ways To Foster A Better American Democracy,” was meant to inspire citizens to educate themselves with regard to the issues and then get involved and vote.

Following the Q&A, many in the audience broke down into small groups, zeroed in on specific subject areas and continued the discussion.

Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli also stopped by to offer a greeting, noting pointedly that Mike D’Innocenzo had been his first history professor when he was a student at Hofstra.
