Event Details

Description

Public speaker? Abe Lincoln never fit the part. Too tall, too homely, too ungainly. People said he looked like a tree about to fall. Only when he began to speak did doubts disappear.  By the time he sat down, audiences cheered without restraint.  Dr. Ramage will highlight Lincoln’s Cooper Institute speech, which awakened the nation to Honest Abe’s presidential potential, and the Gettysburg Address, which sealed his legacy as one of the great public speakers of all time.

Six@Six Lecture Series

Six@Six is a community lectures series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. Think of this as your chance to go to college, minus the tuition, the morning classes and the pressure of grades.

The season will start with an evaluation of the Constitution and the Emancipation Proclamation and end with a look into the dark side of the life of Machiavelli. In between, you’ll learn about the evolution of wire service photography, the effects of consuming energy cocktails, wobbly atoms, and the truth behind police drama forensic science.

Six@Six is hosted by three of our region’s finest arts and cultural institutions: The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Behringer-Crawford Museum and The Mercantile Library. This year for the first time a lecture will be held in Northern Kentucky University’s new state-of-the-art Digitorium in Griffin Hall. The lectures begin this fall and stretch into next spring. The six lectures each start at 6 p.m. and cost $6 (buy a season pass for $30; students are free.)
