I am doing the 4th Street Forum on Thursday.
4th STREET FORUM PRESENTS
POLITICS, POWER, AND PRAYER
For many Americans, politics and religion are linked.
Others want the two kept well apart.
What does the presence of religion in politics mean for pluralistic America?
Each forum is taped in front of a live audience for later broadcast on Milwaukee Public Television, Channels 10/36. The forums are free and open to the public. Come and be a part of the discussion. Participate by asking questions of the panelists. Bring your lunch or purchase it from Historic Turner Restaurant.
FORUM DATE AND TIME: FEBRUARY 7, NOON
WHERE: Milwaukee Turner Hall, 2nd Floor, 1034 N. 4th Street (4th and Highland)
