The date is fast approaching for SMART PEOPLE so be sure to get your tickets at the link in bio!

Nature vs Nurture - Is it in our genes or did we learn it? A surgeon, an actress, a psychologist, and a neuro-psychiatrist tackle the human brain and how it responds to race, just days before Obama wins the White House. And while they are at it, these Smart People also search for love, success, and identity…come see how smart they really are.

DATES:
Thursday, Dec 9th - Saturday, Dec 11th at 7:30pm
