HISTORY (BEHIND THE SCENES)
Well, that’s what we call ourselves because essentially that is the guiding principal of what we seek to present/understand. And a grand journey it is, as anyone who attends our “sessions” can tell you.
The idea is for class members (very democratic!) to present a history topic/event that is little known, even controversial, in whatever method they feel comfortable-, DVD, lecture or round table discussion etc.
Oh! Yes! Morning tea is always available after presentation
