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.

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.
