MLK Day TEDTalkathon!

Our friends at Studio 35 have generously opened up their theater to us on MLK day from 2pm – 5:00pm to view a great selection of TED and TEDx talks. Our goal is to reflect on some important messages by watching a series of inspired talks together. And also stay warm on what is usually a frigid January day!

This is not an officially licensed TEDx event, just a gathering put together by those who do organize TEDxColumbus.
