Wine, Cheese, Dialogue and Democracy

ID : 646   
« back to classes page

Are all men created equal? Have the claims of individual liberty triumphed over those of equality? Were colonists more, less, or equally powerful compared to citizens today? These are just some of the questions sparked by Danielle Allen’s powerful and thought provoking book Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality. Chosen as this year’s One Book One Northwestern selection, it has started a timely dialogue on campus. Come join the conversation – you don’t need to have read the book to contribute. We’ll enjoy wine and cheese while we discuss the meaning of democracy today.

One Book One Northwestern is a campus-wide reading program held at Northwestern University every year. In addition to campus-wide events, OLLI expands and supplements the program with events open to all OLLI members.
