In 399 BCE, the Athenian philosopher Socrates was found guilty of corrupting the youth of the city and put to death. The story of his trial and death (famously, by drinking hemlock) remains urgent and relevant today as we ponder issues of free speech and freedom of information.
Lauder College House’s Global Citizenship Forum, in partnership with Riepe College House’s “Creative Souls, Creative Minds” Program are therefore proud to invite you to attend a special screening of:
“The Trial of Socrates” (25 mins) as reported by Walter Cronkite in the popular TV Series You Are There (1953), followed by a conversation about free speech, a classical education, and the role of the humanities in promoting social justice.
RSVP via the House Calendar by Thursday, April 15 and attend the event to receive a *Mystery Late Night Snack* afterwards.
Then join us on Sunday night at 9.00pm via Zoom!
See you then!
