The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) and Maryland Public Television held a screening of select clips from the American Public Television miniseries, “The Reagan Presidency.”

Following the presentation, the distinguished panel revisited Ronald Reagan’s presidency, from his sweeping domestic agenda to the end of the Cold War, exploring what made Reagan “The Great Communicator.” The panelists examined the qualities that allowed Reagan to successfully execute his broad agenda and leave office with a lasting legacy.

While they discuss the many challenges faced during the Reagan presidency, the panel also looked for bipartisan lessons to apply in today’s hyper-partisan political climate.
