Peoria Riverfront Museum/Peoria Historical Society
Join us for a special panel discussion about Peorians who changed the way people think and advanced society globally - from Betty Friedan to Richard Pryor - by the Peoria Journal Star journalists who interviewed and covered them! Our local journalists have been on the beat through the years as the ultimate daily keepers of our Peoria area history. This event, moderated by Journal Star Executive Editor, Dennis Anderson, provides an opportunity for public Q&A on these world-changing Peorians.
