One Day University – “Pirates: Separating Fact from Fiction”
16 September 2022, Live Lecture at 4:00pm (EST) – Virtual (will be recorded)
This truly unique and unusual class will take you back to learn more about these outlaws of the sea, including the dangerous lives they led, their motivations to enter a world of intrigue, and the treasures they plundered. What enabled pirates to flourish for nearly a century and what led to their decline? This lecture will upend what you thought you knew about this Golden Age of piracy. Who they were, who were they secretly working for, and how they become “Disney-fied.” Did they really have peg legs and eye patches, bury their treasure, and force their victims to walk the plank? Climb aboard and find out for yourself! Check out the One Day University website for details: https://www.onedayu.com/videos/pirates-separating-fact-from-fiction/.
