​FRANK Talks

What are FRANK Talks image
FRANK Talks are face-to-face conversations on ideas that matter, led by a humanities scholar/expert on the topic. The goal of FRANK Talks is to inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship - to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully with one another on issues that affect our communities. Join us to discuss important issues with the opportunity to put them in context, weigh facts, and consider different points of view.


​Is This Racist? Racial Literacy and Social Media

with Dr. Kathy Nakagawa, Arizona State University, School of Social Transformation

​Immigrants and the American Dream: We the People Today and Tomorrow

with Dr. T.J. Davis, Arizona State University, School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies
