Rising Voices Lecture featuring Calvin Terrell

Ten years after the election of Barack Obama, the nation’s first African-American president, America still is walking the line between hope and hate. How might we engage in honest explorations of America’s past, present and future that will encourage reflection, discourse, and foster change? 

Calvin Terrell, an acclaimed thought leader in and beyond Arizona, will use rhetoric, art, science and religion as lenses through which we can consider this moment of possibility and civic responsibility. Join us as Terrell delivers a dynamic, interactive lecture that examines the past decade and inspires each person to take an active role in influencing and shaping the future of their communities.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
