Zack Kopplin at Centenary College -Bynum Commons Wednesday 1/29/2014 @ 7 PM
Zack Kopplin is an American political activist, journalist, and television personality from Louisiana. Kopplin has campaigned to keep creationism out of public school science classrooms and been involved with other separation of church and state causes. He has opposed school vouchers because they provide public money to schools which may teach creationism. As a senior at Baton Rouge Magnet High School, he secured the signatures of 78 Nobel laureate scientists opposing the passage of the Louisiana Science Education Act, which opened the door for the teaching of creationism in public schools. Zack is active in issues involving the separation of church and state and is a strong voice for the teaching of science in public school classrooms.
Zack will be on campus Wednesday night at 7pm, and Thursday at 11:10am. Both events are in the Whited Room, which is in Bynum Commons. The Monday, Feb. 3, event is also at 7pm in the Whited Room. It will be a panel-led community conversation.
