Speaker: Dr. Scott Allison, Professor of Psychology, University of Richmond

Location: Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion.

This week's CCE Brown Bag speaker will define heroism and review how heroes transform themselves and as well as society. He will also describe specific heroes and their achievements, including African-American heroes who left an indelible mark on the city of Richmond. This event is a part of Black History Month. Free pizza will be provided.
