ST. GEORGE – Dixie State University‘s weekly “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” convocation series will conclude its historical “Unheard Voices” format for the 2013 spring semester with a panel discussion led by members of the Centennial Park Action Committee on the issues of history, polygamy and alternative religious traditions on Thursday.
The forum will begin at noon in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
The presentation will feature several “sister wife” leaders of CPAC who will be giving a brief presentation about their community and answering questions concerning the past and future of polygamists in the United States. By forming a panel called CPAC, they hope to educate others about the polygamous lifestyle as practiced in Centennial Park and dispel popular stereotypes about themselves and their motives for living polygamous lifestyles.
The Dixie Forum series will return in September with a new series entitled “The Changing Face of America,” exploring the contemporary theme of “What Does it Mean to be an American?” For more information, please contact DSU Assistant Professor Dr. Joel A. Lewis at 435-652-7864 or [email protected].
