A history discussion where each of us will read/watch whatever we want to on the subject, bringing that information to the discussion. Like a mosaic, we will each share what we read/watched with the group, so we all go home with a bigger picture of the subject. Read a book, view a movie or documentary, read articles from magazines or online, come and share with the rest of the group what you know about the person or issue. No matter what you think you know about these historical subjects, there has probably been some new research and knowledge about them over the last 4 decades. Share it with us!
