NICEVILLE, FL— Northwest Florida State College will host Sarah Palin and Donna Brazile in the college’s inaugural speaker series event, Bridging the Political Divide, at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, September 21, 2018.
“The NWF State College President’s Speaker Series is a new initiative that will feature renowned speakers sharing their expertise with our community,” says Dr. Devin Stephenson, President. “We are proud to bring esteemed speakers to the Emerald Coast and to offer these events at Northwest Florida State College.”
Sarah Palin, the GOP’s first female vice presidential candidate, became a conservative icon and Republican kingmaker. Donna Brazile, the first African-American to head a presidential campaign, went on to lead the Democratic National Committee at a critical juncture in the 2016 campaign. They couldn’t be more different. Or, more surprisingly similar. Both are political trailblazers known for speaking their minds—and for passionately speaking out for ordinary Americans. In this powerful conversation, two of the most respected and outspoken women in American politics examine our increasingly polarized country and the future of the Republican and Democratic parties. This very honest look at both sides of the partisan divide finds new hope in the values and ideals that can bring us together as Americans.
The event is free with a cash donation or a donation of nonperishable food items supporting the SGA Feed-A-Raider program.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. Limited seating available.
