Oregon Humanities Conversation Project: It’s a Free Country: Exploring the Limitations and Responsibilities of Freedom

  •  11.12.19
     6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ever heard the expression “America: land of the brave and free” or “It’s a free country! I can do what I want?” Maybe you think or say these things yourself. But what does it mean to “be free?” Join Ann Su for a conversation that explores the impact of culture on how we define, value and experience freedom personally and in community. Participants will discuss different questions: Does everyone have access to freedom in the same way? What choices come with freedom and what are the responsibilities that accompany those choices? How does the concept of “freedom” play out in a diverse, democratic society?

“It’s a Free Country” is in conjunction with our new exhibit Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii.

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm, doors at 5:30 pm

All are welcome. A $5 donation is encouraged.
