- Feb 7: March: Book One
The Black Googler Network (BGN) and Talks at Google were honored to host Congressman John Lewis. Rep. Lewis is a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. He stopped by to discuss his recently-published graphic novel: March: Book One. March is a vivid first-hand account of his dedication to the struggle for civil and human rights.
Eckhart Tolle stops by Google for a fireside chat with Bradley Horowitz. The subject is: “Living with Meaning, Purpose and Wisdom in the Digital Age.”
- Feb 21: Improbable Scholars
David Kirp visits Google to talk about his book, “Improbable Scholars: The Rebirth of a Great American School System and a Strategy for America’s Schools” “No school district can be all charismatic leaders and super-teachers. It can’t start from scratch, and it can’t fire all its teachers and principals when students do poorly. Great charter schools can only serve a tiny minority of students. Whether we like it or not, most of our youngsters will continue to be educated in mainstream public schools.”
- Feb 28: Surviving the Angel of Death
Eva Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust, a forgiveness advocate, and a public speaker. Her life lesson #1 is never, ever give up. She believes anyone is capable of overcoming anything, and that forgiveness is a powerful way of self-healing. Eva Kor and her twin sister became part of a group of children used as human guinea pigs in genetic experiments, under the direction of the now-infamous Dr. Josef Mengele. Approximately 3,000 individual twins were used in experiments. Eva became gravely ill, but through sheer determination, she stayed alive and helped Miriam survive. About 150 twins were found alive when the Soviet Army liberated Auschwitz on January 27, 1945.
