Precedented: Lessons from history

The churn of day-to-day news makes it easy to forget that so much of what we're seeing now has happened in some way before. But history is full of lessons to offer the present. In our video series, “Precedented,” multimedia reporters Jessica Mendoza and Jingnan Peng look to the past to understand the challenges we face today and our way forward. From health care reform to economic crisis, we dig into the archives to find images, faces, and voices that show how history continues to resonate today.
