Nori Rost: Good Bones
July 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
In-person and online!
As we celebrate our 246th birthday, Dr. Rost will look at the reasons our forebears fought for independence, the hope they had for our country and compare it to where we are today. Are we fulfilling the dreams of George Washington and others? What has changed between 1 and 46? What can we do better to bring about the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all?
This week also features a performance by special musical guest Keith Anthony Fluitt!
