February's forum topics include "A Lonesome Whistle:
A Celebration of Railroading in Song and Story," presented
by Michael Sands, a retired attorney and a docent at the California
State Railroad Museum, on Feb. 15.
On Feb. 22, CSUS history professor Shirley Moore presents
"Race, Gender, Power: People of Color Along the American
