Forty years have passed since the Beatles released The White Album, introducing "Blackbird," "Rocky Raccoon," "Sexy Sadie," "Helter Skelter" and "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" into the cultural lexicon.
At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, in Kresge Auditorium, a public conversation will explore the innovations that made the Beatles a powerful cultural force and inquire whether they will remain so in the future. "Beatles on the Brain" is sponsored by Stanford's Aurora Forum in conjunction with the Stanford Humanities Center.
The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
