Second Lecture on Liberty to be in Emporia


The second in the series of three Lectures on Liberty will be held on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at the historic Granada Theater in downtown Emporia. The speaker will be Jonathan Bean, professor of history at Southern Illinois University and the editor of Race and Classical Liberalism, a wonderful collection of original sources which has been endorsed by Ward Connerly, Shelby Steele, and Linda Chavez, among others. Professor Bean will be speaking on the topic: “God Almighty Made But One Race: Separating Race and State.” The lecture is free and open to the public and begins at 7:00 pm.

The ESU Lectures on Liberty was conceived by Greg Schneider, professor of History at Emporia State University, to bring in important academics who support the idea of research and scholarship on critical issues regarding liberty in American history. The lecture series is underwritten by the Fred C. and Mary R. Koch Foundation in Wichita.
