"Let's Talk About It, Oklahoma" Series

None
7-9 p.m., Tuesday January 22
Near the end of his life, Oglala Sioux visionary Black Elk tells poet Neihardt the story of his power-vision journey. Called by many "The Fifth Testament", Black Elk Speaks moves from Wounded Knee Crazy Horse to the end of a people's way of life. This shaman comes to realize that the central mountain of his vision is not just in the Black Hilss, that God is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.

Oklahoma City University invites participants to make these books come alive in the readings of this five-part series. At each session, a Humanities scholar will make a 30-40 minute presentation on the book in the context of the theme. Small group discussion will follow with experienced discussion leaders. At the end, everyone will come together for a brief wrap-up. Anyone interested in participating by attending the sessions is encouraged to pre-register and borrow the reading selections by calling Harbour Winn at 208-5472, emailing him at hwinn@okcu.edu, or dropping by the Dulaney0Browne Library, Room 211 or 207.(Note the officees are located in the five-story building southwest of Walker Center.) Information can also be found on the website of the Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film & Literature: www.okcu.edu/film-lit/.

The series will be held in Walker Center, Room 151, on the Oklahoma City University campus from 7-9 p.m on Tuesdays, beginning Jan. 8th and continuing on alternate Tuesdays through March 5. Books, serices and other materials for this series of the programs are provided by Let's Talk About IT, Oklahoma, a project of the Oklahoma Humanities Council with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities . Funding for this series was provided by a grant from the Inasmuch Foundation.
