Monday Movie Matinee - Fences

Movie Fences

In the turbulent racially charged climate of the U.S. the 1950's, an African-American man fights to raise his family. Social oppression, discrimination, and long time anger bubble up from under the surface as he tries to be a role model for his growing children, teaching them how to survive in an unfair world. At the same time he must look within himself and deal with painful events from his own past in order to move forward.

Evening Book Discussion - Brown Girl Dreaming

Brown Girl Dreaming book cover

In celebration of National Poetry Month, we're reading Jacqueline Woodson's memoir in verse. Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement.

Film Discussion: Judgement at Nuremberg & Casablanca

Film Discussion: Judgement at Nuremberg and Casablanca

One film, released in 1961, was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" for its depiction of a 1947 military tribunal. The second, best known for its romantic conflict, timed its release in January of 1943 with the Casablanca Conference attended by Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Are the 1940s themes explored in these award-winning classics still relevant today?
