CANCELLED – CLP: Wisdom from Winston

March 19, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Department of Communication Studies is celebrating World Speech Day on March 19th with a CLP honoring the power of speech to bring people together and promote change. The Wisdom from Winston presentation should be part of Furman’s Cultural Life Program because it showcases excellent rhetoric from the past and calls attention to the power of speech across the decades. The question-and-answer time after Mr. Bounds’ speech–while he is still in character–dramatically forces students to imagine connections between them and Anglo-American history. This event will help us remember the human past, develop our judgment about that past, and sharpen our moral and aesthetic sensitivity to present solutions–aligning with the spirit and the mission of the study of the Humanities at Furman University.
