When Giants Ruled the Sky: The Brief Reign and Tragic Demise of the Rigid American Airship
When Giants Ruled the Sky: The Brief Reign and Tragic Demise of the Rigid American Airship

Few people realize that prior to the Hindenburg, airships transported thousands of paying passengers millions of miles without a single casualty. And they did so, for more than 20 years--a safety record unmatched by any other form of transportation. John's talk focuses on the true but little-known story of the USS Macon (ZRS-5), a U.S. Navy Zeppelin that was the world’s largest, most expensive, most technologically advanced aircraft of her day. He reveals for the first time anywhere how the American Zeppelin came within a hair’s breadth of replacing planes, trains, and ocean liners as the dominant form of long-distance transportation–a tale of physical courage, ugly politicking, two egregious disasters, and a Navy coverup.

The Tulsa Race Massacre 101 Years Later

Historian and writer Noah Griffin will present "The Tulsa Race Massacre 101 Years Later". When race riots were renamed massacres, America began to come to grips with the unnverving nature of its disturbing past. Dozens of heretofore justificed mob shootings, killings, lynchings, and wholesale destruction of Black cities and towns across the nation and across centuries took on a new meaning. No massacre encapsulates that untold story better than the Tulsa Massacre of 101 years ago. 

Noah is a longtime Marin County Rotarian currently serving as president of Central Marin County in Larkspur.
