The Benwood Foundation, in conjunction with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Create Here, and the Ochs Center for Metropolitan Studies, will be presenting Malcolm Gladwell as the first speaker of the 3rd annual George T. Hunter Lecture Series. Speakers for this series are prominent experts on topics targeting areas of interest for the Chattanooga area.
The speakers for the 2010 Lecture Series include Malcolm Gladwell, Newark New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker, Geoffrey Canada, and Dr. Vandana Shiva. Each of these individuals have made significant advances in understanding humanity, community, science and the world around us.
The first lecture in the series this year will be held Tuesday, October 5th in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga beginning at 7:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. There is limited seating in the hall so plan to arrive early. There will also be facilities for over-flow to allow as many people as possible to hear the guest speaker.
