Darwin Day: Darwin on Trial--Rescheduled

The Real Story of the Scopes Monkey Trial, Dayton, Tennessee 1925. During a hot July in Dayton, Tennessee in 1925, a teacher named John Scopes was put on trial for teaching the evolutionary origins of humanity. But Scopes wasn’t who was really on trial, rather it was Darwin, his ideas, and the right to pursue them that stood in judgement.  Join us as we recount and replay this fascinating and pivotal moment in the history of evolution and education.

Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, we had to postpone this event originally scheduled for February 10. The event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, February 24 at 7 p.m.
