Death Cafe’ @ Lewisburg Hotel
Sep 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.

It is an opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings which may help relieve fear and regrets of the finality that sometimes accompanies death. It is not a place to focus on death, but rather an opportunity to discuss what is important to us and to those we leave behind.

Death Cafe’ offers a place to start living a fuller and more appreciative life with those around you: those you love, those you care about, and those you interact with in your daily existence.

It is never too early to start talking, but it can become too late. Don’t wait! Join us at Death Cafe’ Be curious. Be courageous. Be comfortable.

Susquehanna Valley Progress meeting: Alt-Right 101: Everything You Ever Didn’t Want to Know talk by Sam Pearson
Sep 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

This talk will provide background on the political and cultural phenomenon known as the Alt-Right, drawing on the work of David Neiwert, author of Alt-America, Clint Watts, Angela Nagle and others. The philosophical lineage traces back to the 1980s but the form and evolution of the movement is a function of current communications and social media technology. To be considered: Where are they coming from? What are they talking about? How can we recognize them? Slide show, talk outline, and bibliography/reading list provided.

Color of Law Lecture at Bucknell
Sep 24 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm

Richard Rothstein, the author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America will be visiting Bucknell.

Mr. Rothstein will give a lecture on September 24th, 2019 at 7 PM in the ELC Forum focused on segregated neighborhoods, schools, and inequality of educational opportunity followed by audience Q&A.

The following is a brief bio of Mr. Rothstein from the Economic Policy Institute:

Richard Rothstein is a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a Senior Fellow, emeritus, at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and of the Haas Institute at the University of California (Berkeley).

He is the author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America, available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other booksellers. The book recovers a forgotten history of how federal, state, and local policy explicitly segregated metropolitan areas nationwide, creating racially homogenous neighborhoods in patterns that violate the Constitution and require remediation.

He is also the author of Grading Education: Getting Accountability Right (2008); Class and Schools: Using Social, Economic and Educational Reform to Close the Black-White Achievement Gap (2004); and The Way We Were? Myths and Realities of America’s Student Achievement (1998). Other recent books include The Charter School Dust-Up: Examining the Evidence on Enrollment and Achievement (co-authored in 2005); and All Else Equal: Are Public and Private Schools Different? (co-authored in 2003).

Sponsored by the Education Department (and multiple other university sponsors not yet announced).
