Tuesday, April 2nd: S.A.S.S. Presents: A Healthy Dose of History

S.A.S.S. Presents: A Healthy Dose of History
Public Assembly (70 N. 6th St., Brooklyn)
7pm
Free

The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) is proud to present a series of lectures designed to both entertain and enlighten. One Tuesday, each month, we will meet to discuss a different historical topic that you probably knew at one point but don’t remember anymore, plus themed drink specials.

A historical fact a day keeps the doctor away (apples, you had your chance…), so SASS is going to take a look at some of the crazy things our ancestors had to do while trying to stay alive- if what they did didn’t kill them first. Our speakers will cover:
* The History of Mental Health
* How The Black Plague Effed Europe Up
* The Advancement (or lack thereof) of Surgical Techniques Through Time

DJ Kate Flavin will be curing what ails you between lectures.

And OF COURSE, stick around after the lectures for the ever inspiring Crappy Cinema Council
