DescriptionPaulo Freire (1921-1997) was a Brazilian educator and philosopher known the world over as founder and advocate of the school of thought known as critical pedagogy. This fall marks 100 years since Freire’s birth, and Baylor will be recognizing this centennial with a series of events across campus.

This event honors Freire with a screening of the documentary 'Seeing Through Paulo's Glasses: Political Clarity, Courage, and Humility,' directed and produced by Shirley Steinberg and Giuliana Cucinelli (The Freire Project) on the half-hour. Food and drinks will be provided, and attendees will have the opportunity to view "Flores Juninas (Flowers of June)," an interactive art installation based on Freire's life and legacy created by Sarah Mosher and Guilherme Feitosa de Almeida.
