Exactly 20 years ago, our world was changed forever. September 11, 2001, has left a persistent impact on the lives of many, and in honor and remembrance of that fateful day, Muskegon Community College’s Experimental Learning will host, “20 Year Anniversary of September 11, 2001- Remembrance and Reflection.”

The event will take place on Wednesday, September 22nd, from 7-8:30 pm, located at the Muskegon Area District Library’s Norton Shores branch at 705 Seminole Road, Norton Shores. Hosted by MCC History Instructors George Maniates and Kurt Troutman, the event will be structured as an opportunity for the public to gather and discuss the impact September 11th had on their lives, and how those consequences and struggles have been carried into 2021.

Local musician, Kwame James, will also be in attendance, and the event is free and open to any who would like to attend. If you’d like further information contact Alison Purgeli at (231)-737-6248 (extension 510), or by email at [email protected].
