Active Minds Presents: Evolution of NATO

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

Created after World War II, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) played a pivotal role in fighting, and ultimately winning, the Cold War. Subsequently, NATO took on different roles in countries like Bosnia and Afghanistan. Recently, the role of NATO in Europe has been revisited in the aftermath of the Russian annexation of Crimea. Join Active Minds as we take a look at the triumphs and challenges of NATO and how it continues to adapt to the 21st century landscape.

Active Minds Presents: Pearl Harbor

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

December 7, 1941 brought an attack upon the United States the likes of which had never been seen before. Join Active Minds as we tell the story from both the Japanese and the U.S. perspective. We will cover not only how the Japanese planned and executed such a bold attack, but also how the U.S. could have been caught so completely unaware. We will also examine the impact this had on World War II and the American psyche.
