Johnson C. Smith University is proud to pave the way to the Democratic National Convention by offering a nonpartisan civic education opportunity through our Lyceum Series “Democracy 2012: The Road to Charlotte.” This is our part in helping to educate and engage the greater Charlotte area in the democratic process as we present a wide range of prominent speakers from local, regional and national arenas. That is why these lectures are free and open to the public.
Our ultimate goal is to challenge all to become politically aware, socially active and intellectually inspired so that we can make America the best it can be. This presidential election year will have a lasting impact on students, faculty and the Charlotte community. I invite you to join us in welcoming an outstanding slate of media, political, government and education experts as we expand our horizons.
