Soul Cafe – “What Is It Like to Go to War”

February 21 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

“What It Is Like to Go to War”

is the topic of the presentation by Dr. Nancy Omaha Boy at Soul Café on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. at West Lawn United Methodist Church, 15 Woodside Ave., West Lawn.

War has occurred in 92% of the past 3475 years of human civilization. Dr Nancy Omaha Boy will compare a set of books about war: Vietnam, Battle of Bulge, WWI, and WWII between the Russians and Germans. All books on war consider how we handle attack, killing, being wounded and death, as well as the on-going effect and trauma for those engaged.

 

Dr. Nancy Omaha Boy is the retired vice president of academic affairs at Reading Area Community College and associate dean at Rutgers University where she taught courses on American Indians. Her late husband was a full-blooded Lakota Indian and she lived on Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota from 1970 to 1981. Nancy has spoken about Native American spirituality and its suppression as well as the abuse of cultural and religious artifacts, even sacred lands and burial sites.

Soul Café is a “coffee house” type of discussion on matters of general. Topics have ranged from contemporary issues, social justice concerns, matters of faith, and how organizations are working to address the needs of our society. All are welcome and there is no charge. For further information, contact Dr. Harry L. Serio at hlserio@aol.com.
