A Place in the World – Shelby Knox

The Education of Shelby Knox film and discussion, February 13, 2009.

A Place In the World was visited by Shelby Knox, the former Lubbock Texas teen who shook the town with her insistence on something more than abstinence-only sex education. Shelby has been coming to the APIW program now for 4 years, since she was a freshman at University of Texas. It’s been great to watch Shelby mature and see her thoughts gain strength with every year. I’d be interested to see if any of you think her talking to us helped strengthen YOUR thoughts on sexuality, self-esteem, relations between men and women and the place of religion in your life–whew! that’s a tall order.
