LovingFilm Screening and Discussion: Loving
Saturday, February 10 at 1:00 pm
From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry. A discussion will follow the film.

Black Gun Silver starBook Discussion: Black Gun, Silver Star by Art T. Burton
Saturday, February 24 at 2:00 pm
Burton sifted fact from myth to find the truth about perhaps the greatest lawman of the Wild West. Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves was fluent in Native American languages, skilled with firearms, and a master of disguise. That Reeves spent his early life as a slave makes his accomplishments even more remarkable. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome, even if you haven’t read the book!

Author Talk with Ann Sandford

Reluctant ReformerAuthor Talk with Ann Sandford
Saturday, January 27 at 11:00 am

Ann Sandford will bring to life the untold story of her distant cousin, Nathan Sanford, who is revealed in her latest book, Reluctant Reformer, as an ambitious, pragmatic lawyer and politician who contributed to the expansion of democratic rights and responsive government in post-revolutionary America.

As a lawyer, Sanford contributed to modern property law. In the Senate, he dealt with central banking, struggled against slavery, and supportedpopular voting for presidential electors. At the New York State Constitutional Convention of 1821, he fought for universal manhood suffrage. Rising quickly to prominence as the federal attorney appointed by President Jefferson to serve New York State, Sanford navigated a career among Republican factional leaders—DeWitt Clinton, Aaron Burr, and Martin Van Buren—first in New York City, then in the state, and then the nation. In 1824, he ran for vice president on the ticket with Henry Clay. Facing decisions about whom to trust with a militia’s gun and a citizen’s vote, Sanford could shift from his principles toward political compromise, as in restricting black male suffrage and in the removal of Indians from their ancestral lands.

Period snacks and refreshments will be served.
