Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Jan. 30: JC Watts talks about faith, race, and leadership

Former Congressman J.C. Watts to comes to Butler University to give a talk called “Join Hands for Results” as part of Celebration of Diversity Distinguished Lecture Series

When: Monday January 30, 7:30-10:30 PM

Where: Butler University Clowes Hall Auditorium

J.C. Watts is former Oklahoma Congressman and author of What Color is a Conservative? Rising from small town origins, Watts became a high-profile congressman who served as chairman of the House Republican Conference and honorary co-chair of the Republican National Convention in 2000. Statesman, ordained minister, political commentator and athlete, Watts’ concerns encompass the world — from AIDS relief in Africa to issues in his native Oklahoma. Watts has recently joined CNN as a commentator.

You might want to compare Watts to a few other conservative politicians: Sen. Lugar will speak on February 19, Rep. Dan Burton on April 3. You can hear another conservative who happens to be African American when Deroy Murdock speaks February 6.

Tickets are free but required for admission and can be obtained at the Clowes Hall box office.
