Description

Movie Night - Salon 32: Inherit the Dar-wind

Eliah Overbey (Genome Sciences), Dr. Joe Felsenstein (Genome Sciences, Biology)

You are cordially invited to Charles Darwin's birthday bash! On Feb 12, Charles Darwin turns 209. To celebrate his numerous scientific achievements the salon will be throwing a movie night in his honor. We will watch "Inherit the Wind," the 1960 period drama inspired by the Scopes "Monkey" Trial, where a high school teacher is put on trial for teaching evolution in a public high school. Before the film we will evaluate some of the film's inaccuracies, historical context, and statements on McCarthyism and intellectual freedom.
