Dix Park Public Lecture | From Memory to Action: Elizabeth Silkes @ A.J. Fletcher Opera | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Elizabeth Silkes, Executive Director of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience’s free lecture “From Memory to Action” will explore the past, present, and potential future life of Dorothea Dix Park as our community seeks to honor the land’s history.

What Is a Site of Conscience?

A place of memory that confronts both the history of what happened there and its legacies. Sites of Conscience begin by facing all aspects of their history. Then they go a step further, activating the historical perspective with dynamic public dialogue on related issues faced today and what we can do about them

What Is the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience?

The only worldwide network dedicated to transforming places that preserve the past into spaces that promote civic action. The Coalition recognizes that the power of sites of memory is not inherent. It must be harnessed as a deliberate tactic in the service of human rights and citizen engagement.

It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise, on a two-week training cruise for cadets does not make him feel any younger. But the cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his old nemesis Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Mantalban) appears after years of exile determined to give Kirk a dirt nap.

Prior to the movie, beginning at 5:30, check out movie-themed science stations to learn everything you ever wanted to know about the science behind the Star Trek saga. After the movie, hear from a guest speaker to find out what “Star Trek II” got right or wrong, scientifically speaking.
