Description:
<p>Atlantic editor <a href="https://www.theatlantic.com/author/vann-newkirk/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Vann R. Newkirk II</a> talks to Kim about the mutability of memory, as seen through two portraits of the abolitionist John Brown. He also explains how a photograph of his mom helped him to appreciate the fragility of democracy in the United States, and why he tries to keep a garden wherever he goes.</p><p>See the portraits we discuss:</p><p><a href="https://npg.si.edu/object/npg_NPG.65.77?destination=edan-search/default_search%3Fedan_local%3D1%26edan_q%3Dgeorge%252Bwashington%252Bcarver" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">George Washington Carver</a></p><p><a href="https://npg.si.edu/object/npg_NPG.96.123?destination=edan-search/default_search%3Fedan_local%3D1%26edan_q%3Djohn%252Bbrown" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">John Brown daguerreotype</a></p><p><a href="https://npg.si.edu/object/npg_NPG.74.2?destination=edan-search/default_search%3Fedan_local%3D1%26edan_q%3Djohn%252Bbrown" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">John Brown painting</a></p><p><a href="https://www.theatlantic.com/podcasts/archive/2021/02/vann-newkirk/617916/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Marylin Thurman Newkirk</a></p>
