C-Span Q&A: Interview with Susan Swain

Jessica DuLong, former chief engineer on NYC fireboat John J. Harvey, talks about the rescue of nearly 500,000 people, by boat, off the island of Manhattan following the 9/11 attacks. It was the largest maritime evacuation in history.

This hour-long conversation about the boat lift touched upon: the importance of viewing history from a diversity of different lenses so we don’t get stuck in the same formulaic narratives; everyday heroism and goodness and altruism that often take place outside the spotlight; and the role of grief in our unfolding national story; among other topics.
