Liberal political activist, author and Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore will present the lecture "Stupid White Men? The Current State of American Politics" at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 10, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a question-and- answer period, and a reception and book signing in the Clipper Room.
Moore's speech is part of the 2003 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "The Great American Experiment: A Juxtaposition of Capitalism and Democracy," a student-run series examining how the two pillars of American society — capitalism and democracy — interact, and how their interactions affect Americans.
Moore has been challenging economic and political giants for more than two decades and has emerged as one of America's freshest and funniest political voices. As host and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning "TV Nation," he redefined the TV news magazine for a new generation and created what The Wall Street Journal called "that rarest of species — a television program both funny and important." Moore's most recent best-selling book, Stupid White Men...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation, takes a satirical look at 21st century America. His most recent film, Bowling for Columbine, won the 2003 Academy Award for best documentary.
The lecture, reception and book signing are free are free and open to the public. For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit the MSE Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/mse or send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
