Date: December 15, 2013
Time: 1:45
Place: Program Room, Las Vegas Library, 833 Las Vegas Boulevard North
Program: View and discuss DVD : "Dialog of Reason: Science and Faith in the Black Community"

A lively panel discussion recently took place at Howard University on the role that faith and science have played in the black community in America. The members of the panel were Richard Dawkins, Anthony Pinn, Sikivu Hutchenson, Todd Stiefel and Mark Hatcher. Part of the publicity on the DVD cover states that "Faith has traditionally played a significant role among African Americans, while science has been marginalized. It is time to confront the issues that have kept too many Blacks out of the halls of science and confined to the pews." Light refreshments will be served in celebration of the Winter Solstice which will take place on December 21st.

    ". It is time to confront the issues that have kept too many Blacks out of the halls of science and confined to the pews."
    I would venture to say that one of these issues is the tendency of so many blacks to think that working hard in school and getting good grades is "acting white", and they would never want to do that would they?
