Running Bravely Through Life

When: Sat., Nov. 8, 1-4 p.m. 2014

When Billy Mills won the Olympic gold in the 10,000 meter run at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, he became not only the second Native American to win an Olympic gold medal (Jim Thorpe was the first), but also the only American to win the Olympic gold in the event (and that designation stands today). Mills, a member of the Ogata Lakota tribe, will field questions following a screening of Running Brave, a 1983 dramatic re-telling of his life story, and sign copies of his 1990 book Wokini: A Lakota Journey to Happiness and Self-Understanding, written with Nicholas Sparks.

Price: $12 adult, $10 senior, $6 kids 5-17
