Join us for a fascinating 2 1/2 hour walking tour of Old City Philadelphia.
The tour is led by a member of the Dialogue Institute
(based at Temple University)
which works with groups to create an atmosphere of trust as well as foster knowledge, mutual understanding, and informed dialogue across differences.
During the summer of 1793, a mysterious illness spread rapidly across the bustling city of Philadelphia, which was the capital of the new nation. In the course of a few months, nearly 105 of the city's residents died from Yellow Fever. The cataclysmic event inspired acts of heroism and self-sacrifice, but it also starkly revealed retail inequalities and inflamed polarization around immigration policy, political identity, and scientific knowledge. Learn how its lessons apply today.
As our programs are in high demand, it would be helpful if you cancelled as soon as you know you cannot attend. This will open a slot for another member.
