Special Presentations  

OLLI Special Presentations are lectures that are Free and Open to the Public. We encourage you to attend and to bring with you a friend or neighbor who may not have attended an OLLI course before.

Our lectures are typically 90 minutes in length, with approximately 1 hour of lecture time and 30 for questions and answers. They are usually held on Friday afternoons from 1:30-3:00 pm.

Having Special Presentations, in addition to our regular courses, allows us to schedule short lectures that are of special interest to our members, and may also be on a topic that has come to the forefront in the news, in local interest, or concern.

Examples of recent Special Presentations include: Poets of the Piano, Transforming Adversity into Positive Action, One Drop: Symbolism of the Racial Integrity Act, Life as a Ballerina, The Racial and Ethnic History of Charlottesville, Enola Gay: The Aircraft and the Atomic Mission.

As they are scheduled and confirmed, upcoming OLLI Special Presentations will be listed below.
