Great Minds of Our Time On WilliNet

12:00AM / Monday, July 25, 2005

Williamstown - A "Great Minds of Our Time" lecture series has launched on WilliNet: Williamstown Community Television, Channel 17.

Selected lectures of visiting intellectuals speaking at Williams College will be broadcast twice weekly on WilliNet. Lectures are scheduled to be aired on Thursday at 8:30 p.m., and again at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Titled "Window on Williams," the program will also feature Williams faculty talks. Speakers will include historians, politicians, scientists, writers, journalists, along with other great thinkers of our time.

"Window on Williams" premiered on July 21 with a double-bill of Thomas Friedman and Julian Bond. Friedman and Bond spoke during June's Williams Commencement weekend.

Friedman is a foreign affairs columnist for the New York Times and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner. Bond is the chairman of the Board of the NAACP, historian, and longtime civil rights activist. On Thursday, July 28, 8:30pm and Tuesday, August 2, 1:30pm, Pulitzer and Emmy Award-winning author and journalist Hedrick Smith delivers a compelling talk titled: “A Look Back and the View Ahead.”

Williams History Professor Scott Wong is scheduled to appear on Aug. 4 and 9 to discuss “The Good Asian in the Good War.” Wong's recently published book, "Americans First: Chinese Americans and the Second World War" focuses on Chinese Americans during the 1930s, through the Second World War.

Civil Rights leader and teacher Robert Moses leads a participatory discussion about his new initiative to start a national dialogue around the issue of a constitutional amendment guaranteeing quality public education as a civil right. Moses can be seen on Window On Williams on Thursday, August 11, 8:30 and again on Tuesday afternoon, August 16 at 1:30 on Channel 17, WilliNet: Williamstown Community Television.

Information about "Window on Williams" and other WilliNet programs is available by contacting WilliNet Executive Director Deb Dane at debbydane@willinet.org or by calling 413-458-0900.
