      EVENT DETAILS
      Wilma Dykeman: The Mountain South's Great Humanist of the 20th Century

      Wilma Dykeman was a best-selling novelist, teacher, and pioneer in environmental thinking, civil rights, and feminism. As a humanist, Wilma was a deep thinker who was less interested in our place in some great chain of being, but more interested in our current task: Now that we're here, what should we do?

      The talk will begin with a 20-minute video of Wilma Dykeman’s life, followed by her perspective on becoming the best we can be as individuals and as a society through her writings, lectures and personal story as told by her son Jim Stokely.

      Jim is President of the Wilma Dykeman Legacy and lectures and produces events to sustain and foster the core values of Wilma Dykeman.
