There is a lot of fervor about the upcoming national and local elections. For those who love to voice their political and ideological views, we are featuring two special programs this fall. Both are conversations facilitated and sponsored by the New York Council for the Humanities. Here is a chance to speak out and share your thoughts with others.
"Clear and Present Danger:Free Speech and the Constitution" is the first featured on October 2 @ 1PM. James Coll, a professor at Nassau Comunity College and a detective with NYPD leads a discussion on landmark Supreme Court decisions and the delicate balance between this important civil liberty and public safety in America. There is short preparatory material available, call 634-4997 ext 139 to receive a copy.
The second is "Democracy" on November 8 @ 1PM. This conversation sets out to determine if our ideology has changed from 150 years ago. Former director of the African Burial Ground in NYC and currently adjunct instructor, Dr. Sherrill Wilson leads the audience to review American values in the past, present and also the future.
Please join these two learned people to discuss these fascinating and challenging subjects.
