SPECIAL EVENT ON MAY 26
On May 26 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. you're invited to a film screening & discussion of the Oscar®-nominated film, The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.
Engage in a dialog with a panel of local experts. Dr. Ellsberg, the former military analyst responsible for leaking the Pentagon Papers forty years ago, will join the conversation via Skype to help explore the issues stemming from his actions. Was national security compromised? Are there limits to free speech? Are there parallels between the release of the Pentagon Papers and the recent WikiLeaks?
Following this discussion there will be reception with refreshments from 8:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. This special event is free and will be held at Loosemore Auditorium on the downtown campus of Grand Valley State University. Seating is limited and tickets are required. Register and print your tickets from this website.
