Earth Week Film Series, Day 1: Transportation
The first film of Earth Week is dedicated to transportation efficiency. Film summary: To prove you can take a road trip across the U.S without gasoline, a witty Aussie and his terrier, Sparky, set off on a hilariously wild adventure. By driving a wide range of alternative cool-fuel vehicles, the pair find that a country addicted to oil is, in fact, full of alternatives. From a Hummer powered by solar panels to a hog motorcycle that runs on cow pies and garbage, you'll go along for the ride and discover the possibilities.

Kennedy Lecture Series :: Suzan-Lori Parks
The Kennedy Lecture Series is proud to host Suzan-Lori Parks. Suzan-Lori Parks, the 2002 winner of the Pulitzer Prize in theater for her play Topdog/Underdog, was the first African-American woman to be awarded this honor. Her writing addresses social and political issues and raises historical questions, all of which tend to center on marginalized men and women struggling with racial and class prejudice. Ms. Parks will be speaking about the process of becoming a writer, following your creative voice, issues of the day, and her personal journey and body of work.
