Divided We Fall

June 22 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

$45

For the first time, Lifelong Learning is pleased to present lectures by Brookdale’s President and Vice President.

Americans appear to be quite divided in recent history. Families have experienced significant fault lines in their deeply held values, beliefs, and behaviors that they consider acceptable. Friends and neighbors have stopped speaking to each other because they can no longer tolerate the other’s viewpoint. Today, the divisions between political parties have reached record levels, sometimes even producing hatred and violence between groups. Join Brookdale President/Psychologist, David Stout and Vice President/Political Scientist, Matthew Reed for an examination of the factors and processes that have led to these deep divisions.
