“The Role of Churches and Schools in Rural Small Towns” is a program by sociologist Dr. Paul Campbell. As rural small towns either diminish or increase in size over the years, the roles of individual school districts and parish churches also go through a transition in focus and utilization.
The theme for this year’s full-day conference is “Wounded Knee 1890: Aftermath of a People’s Dream.” The program will include presentations by:
- Dr. Jerome Greene (Keynote)–American Carnage: Wounded Knee 1890
- Dr. Joseph Starita–The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge
- Joseph Green–The Meaning of Neihardt’s “Messiah” and Sitanka’s Message
- Also includes a dramatic reading of “Song of the Messiah” by Wayne State College Drama Club
