Dr. Ellery Schempp is the man who, as a boy, played a major role in getting forced prayer out of public schools. As I’ve mentioned before, he’s a freethought hero, if ever there was one.
He’s going on a speaking tour in the Virginia/Washington D.C. area in a couple weeks. All the events are free and open to the public. If you get a chance to hear him, go! You won’t regret it.
A nicely formatted schedule of events is below (click to enlarge) and the list of stops is right below that.
