HISTORY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING IT RIGHT – A SOUTH COAST SENIOR COLLEGE CLASS

The South Coast Senior College has asked Graves Library to help out with getting this class back out to the public.  This will be an in person course for three weeks.  If interested please call the college to register.  Here is the blurb:

[Seems like five years since we’ve had live classes at the Senior College. It’s been at least two years, and maybe three, our last class being in the fall of 2019. Even this relatively short period shows the importance of history in our individual and collective lives. Each of us remembers this period differently. As more time passes and perspective changes, individual histories will morph into a broader national story — I’ll call it A Medical, Social and Political History of COVID.  This brief period alone shows the importance of remembering history and getting it right. Distortions are not allowed, not for any reason.  With this in mind, we, will examine the importance of recorded history as events unfold through time. It’s been said in many ways that in order to understand the present we have to know and understand the past. To me, this is an absolute truth. It’s the reason that individuals and governments try to rewrite history to favor their own point of view. It’s also the reason that knowledge of the past is society’s best defense against distortions in the present and future.  We will view DVDs of historians discussing the importance of history. This will be only a starting point to a wider discussion of history as we, you and me, wish to take it up. I see this as more of a seminar-type class than a traditional classroom effort.]
