World War I & America: America’s Place in the World ~ April 20th

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States entry in World War I, the JXN Community Forum will host a panel discussion on Woodrow Wilson and the continuing impact of his policies in foreign affairs and military engagements. “Woodrow Wilson was one of the most influential Presidents and thinkers in American history. Besides his several legislative achievements at home. Wilson both inspired and frustrated Americans with his vision of the United States as a global power. Our roundtable will consider the political, economic and religious roots of Wilson’s new world order, its reception and impact in his time, and its continuing meaning for today.”  Prof. Mark Edwards and Prof. Mark Correll from Spring Arbor University will be joined by SAU students in the discussion.  This forum is co-sponsored by Ella Sharp Museum, Spring Arbor University, Jackson College Veteran Resource Center, League of Women Voters and UUCEL. …are free and open programs to encourage dialogue about the challenging issues of our day. The series is sponsored by the Universalist Unitarian Church of East Liberty and the Jackson District Library. All forums are held at the JDL, 244 W. Michigan Ave., Jackson, MI and they are usually on the third Thursdays at 6:30-8:30 pm. Childcare may be available for a modest donation.
