Kimball will speak in the Self Auditorium, 230 Kappa St., from 4:30-6 p.m., as part of the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism’s Pope Lecture series. His lecture, “The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America,” is also one of his book titles.

Kimball, also the author of “Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Higher Education,” believes the counterculture of the ’60s and ’70s transformed Americans’ attitudes toward self and country, sex and drugs, and manners and morality. He says that period’s revolutionary movement helped provoke today’s culture wars.

The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are asked to register at the Capitalism Institute’s Eventbrite page .
