This week we have the pleasure of hearing from many talented and accomplished speakers. The first we will hear from is Henry Louis Gates, Jr. at the forum address today. He is an Emmy Award-winning Filmmaker and Historian, and after the forum, he will be hosting a Q&A. His address will be broadcast live today, Tuesday, November 19, 2019, at 11:05 AM MT on BYUtv, BYUtv.org, KBYU-TV 11, Classical 89 FM, and BYU radio. Students are also encouraged to attend on BYU campus, in the Marriott Center.
Later today, there will also be a lecture given by Rabbi Dr. Meir Soloveichik on the recent publication, Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land: The Hebrew Bible in the United States. The presentation will focus on how the history of the First Continental Congress is heavily influenced by the Hebrew Bible, as is the rest of American political history.
