The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University, in conjunction with the Hodges Diversity Committee, will present “Lines May Divide Us, But Hope Will Unite Us,” a moderated discussion which will challenge each participant to look at diversity in new ways. The session will be held on Thursday, February 24 from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Hodges University Science and Technology building, 2655 Northbrooke Drive, just off I-75, in Naples.
The program will begin with a special showing of the movie “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.” Based on the 2006 novel of the same name, written by John Boyne, The Holocaust drama explores the horror of a World War II extermination camp through the eyes of two eight-year-old boys, one the son of the camp's Nazi commandant, the other a Jewish inmate.
Following the movie, a panel of experts in the area of diversity will lead a discussion moderated by Jeff Finder. Featured panelists include Dr. Walter Douglas, Reverend Dr. Kathleen Kircher and and Rabbi Sylvin Wolf.
The presentation is free of charge but reservations are requested. For more information, please call (239) 598-6210.
