Free public forums for seniors

Renaissance Society logoThe Renaissance Society, a learning-in-retirement organization sponsored by California State University, Sacramento, hosts a series of free public forums on topics of interest to seniors on Friday afternoons through May 10. The forums are held from 3 - 4 p.m. in Mendocino Hall 1003.

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 River." Moore will discuss historical and contemporary issues regarding race, identity, gender and community. She will focus on California's diversity and the significant role played by minorities in Sacramento's history.

The Renaissance Society also hosts a series of seminars for members throughout the spring that include morning and afternoon events located on and off campus. The seminars cover such topics as Tai Chi, Theatre for Fun, Macintosh Computer Skills, Conversational French and Spanish and Social Bridge.
