Hannah Arendt Center presents
"Rights and Obligations": Public Conversation on Citizenship and Society
A Discussion Led by Roger Berkowitz Based Upon Hunger of Memory by Richard Rodriguez
Thursday, September 26, 2013
Join us for an active-learning program of community conversation that uses Richard Rodriguez's autobiography Hunger of Memory
as a jumping-off point for discussion.
"I became a man by becoming a public man."
The evening's discussion will address the tensions between cultural identity and U.S. citizenship, the responsibilities inherent in citizenship, and what it means to live a "public life."
Free copies of Hunger of Memory
are available but supplies are limited. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
for your copy. Made possible by the New York Council for the Humanities
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
