OLLI Lectures

To Kill a Mockingbird: Film and Discussion

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the momentous Civil Rights Act of 1964, Bradley University has organized a yearlong celebration that will explore our region’s historic role in the passage of the Act, its impact, and its relevance for civil rights issues today. Our celebration will range from music and theater to scholarly discussions and debate. 

Bradley invites OLLI to be part of the university’s events, beginning in the fall with a discussion of the film To Kill a Mockingbird, facilitated by Bradley President Joanne Glasser, attorney Clifford Scott-Rudnick, Assistant Professor at The John Marshall Law School, and attorney Don Jackson, President of the NAACP Peoria Branch. 

This lecture is open to OLLI members, attorneys, students, faculty, and the public.
