"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
Join LA Law Library for a thought-provoking short film and discussion on reaching goals despite adversity. What obstacles to success and attainment exist in today’s society? Which doors have been opened? Which are still closed? Which obstacles have yet to be explored? A panel of groundbreaking Los Angeles Lawyers and Judges will share their stories in person and a short educational film compiled from oral history interviews will be shown. Local high school students will be attending and actively participating in the discussion.
Friday, October 28, 2016 from 11:00am to 12:30pm.
LA Law Library, Main Branch 301 W. First Street Los Angeles, CA 90012 (213) 785-2529
