The Year 1963
1963 is considered a definitive year in the history of the civil rights movement. It also saw the peak of the Cold War, the seeds of the feminist movement, the rise of the youth culture, and the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy. Join Active Minds as we travel back in time to this key year in history to explore these and other important events. This event is sponsored by The Carillon at Boulder Creek and Brookdale Meridian Boulder.

World War I: The Great War 
As we mark the hundred year anniversary of the end of World War I, join Active Minds for a look at the “war to end all wars.” We will start by understanding the ingredients that kindled the flame that was ignited by the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand on June 28th, 1914 and follow the story as the various players get pulled into the conflict, including the United States in April of 1917. We will end with a brief preview of how the seeds of future conflict were sewn at the conclusion of World War I.

Pearl Harbor: The Day that Lives in Infamy
December 7, 1941 brought an attack upon the United States the likes of which had never been seen before. Join Active Minds over 75 years later as we tell the story from both the Japanese and the U.S. perspective. We will cover not only how the Japanese planned and executed such a bold attack, but also how the U.S. could have been caught so completely unaware. We will also examine the impact this had on World War II and the American psyche. This event is sponsored by Brookdale Meridian Boulder.
