As part of its Community Education and Development Ministry, the Oak Ridge Unitarian Universalist Church will offer a series of viewings and discussions of the PBS series, “The Dictator’s Playbook.”
You can join them on Sunday afternoons from 3-5 p.m. from October 20 through November 24. A final discussion and reception will be held on Sunday, December 8, a press release said.
The group will meet in the Social Hall at ORUUC, which is at 809 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
Six moderator-led sessions will focus on the rise of a particular dictator who arose to infamy in the 20th century, the press release said: Kim II Sung (October 20), Saddam Hussein (October 27), Benito Mussolini (November 3), Manuel Noriega (November 10), Francisco Franco (November 17), and Idi Amin (November 24). The seventh session will be a discussion of common themes and lessons to be learned from the rise, rule, and fall of these modern dictators (December 8), the press release said.
“The Community Education and Development Ministry offers opportunities for members of our community to come together to examine and discuss history and current events to deepen our humanity and understanding of how history and events shape the state of our world and how society can change in ways that uplift or degrade humanity,” the press release said.
