Tue, November 15, 2005 • 7:00 PM • MEZ B0.306
A self-described "good Southern Baptist girl," 15-year-old Shelby Knox of Lubbock, Texas has pledged abstinence until marriage. But she becomes an unlikely advocate for comprehensive sex ed when she finds that Lubbock, where high schools teach abstinence as the only safe sex, has some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy and STDs in the state. Come see the award winning PBS film and discuss the politics of sex education with Shelby Knox - now a sophomore at UT Austin.A poster for this event is available for download (PDF, 682K).
