It was a great lecture and informative lunchtime session. I felt that Dr DeRosa was very engaging, honest and energizing. I would recommend having her back again!

It was a dark and stormy night, wind howling outside. Inside the dome there was group singing and bell playing "Lift Every Voice and Sing, " "We Shall Overcome," and a song ending with "Let Freedom Ring"
