Check out You and Your Racist Brain: The Neuroscience of Prejudice
Larry Sherman will be presenting You and Your Racist Brain: The Neuroscience of Prejudice at Lake Oswego High School on Tuesday.

There will be a Q & A afterward. Sherman is a regular lecturer and also was named the 2012 Teacher of the Year at the OHSU School of Medicine.
The free event will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the auditorium of LOHS, 2501 Country Club Road. Parking will be in short supply, so carpooling is recommended. Or park at River West Church, 2000 Country Club Road, or Lake Oswego Junior High School, 2500 Country Club Road.
