American Legends, Part II

Thursday

1:10 PM – 2:50 PM

9/19, 9/26, 10/3, 10/10, 10/24, 10/31, 11/7, 11/14

Once again, we rediscover some of the great American legends from our generation. Each week we highlight someone from the world of politics, sports, popular culture and music. We revisit their inspirational stories and how they changed American culture. Through the use of award-winning videos, PowerPoint slides and handouts we learn more about Louis Armstrong, Jackie Robinson, Billy Joel, Alfred Hitchcock, Frank Sinatra, Thurgood Marshall, Barbra Streisand and Marilyn Monroe. Join us for the journey! Part I is not a prerequisite to take Part II.
