Individualism and volunteerism have special significance for Americans. According to the author, Alexis de Tocqueville, individualism properly understood and a healthy sense of volunteerism may be keys to democracy’s success and to good citizenship.
This is the focus of “American Character: The Power of Individualism and Volunteerism,” a free conversation with Southern Oregon University professors Prakash Chenjeri and Daniel Morris on Thursday, April 26th at 1:30 p.m. at Driftwood Public Library. This program is hosted
