Active Minds presents: William Shakespeare

Performance and Presentations
6:45 pm - 7:45 pm

Born 450 years ago in 1564, William Shakespeare is regarded by many as the greatest writer in the English language. Although he is most famous for his plays, he rose to fame in his life as a poet, writing 154 sonnets and two long narrative poems. Most of his plays were not published until after his death in 1616, leading some to question his authorship. Join Active Minds as we seek to understand Shakespeare’s life and connect his story to his plays and poems.

Active Minds presents: Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Performance and Presentations
6:45 pm - 7:45 pm

Reflecting on Roosevelt's presidency, his biographer commented that FDR "brought the United States through the Great Depression and World War II to a prosperous future. He lifted himself from a wheelchair to lift the nation from its knees." Join Active Minds as we look at the life and leadership of one of our nation's most admired presidents and examine how his legacy is currently viewed (for better or worse) through the lens of our recent challenges.

Active Minds presents: The Kurds

Performance and Presentations
6:45 pm - 7:45 pm

The Kurds are an ethnic group of approximately 30 million with origins in a part of the Middle East that has been surrounded by the historic powers of the region. Today, the traditional lands of the Kurds are divided into parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. As a minority in each of these countries, the Kurds have long sought their own sovereign nation, or at least more autonomy, with mixed results. As some of these nations have become increasingly unstable, many Kurds see an opportunity for greater control over their own destiny.

Active Minds presents: Tuskegee Airmen

Performance and Presentations
6:45 pm - 7:45 pm

This group of African American pilots were the first black military aviators in the U.S. armed forces. We will tell their story of struggle and triumph and bring this issue into a current context.
