Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Legendary gospel quartet The Blind Boys of Alabama has had an amazing career—since meeting at a state-run, segregated vocational institute for the blind in the 1930s, they have toured continuously, amassing five Grammy Awards and universal acclaim. They soared through the golden era of gospel in the 1950s, experienced difficult times when rock ’n’ roll took over, and resurged with the Broadway hit Gospel at Colonus. Now, as the group enters its seventh decade, they are as artistically vital as ever, collaborating with musicians like Peter Gabriel, Ben Harper, and others. As the surviving band members recount their unlikely success story, we see a rare, remarkable view of life on the road and in the studio with a group of renowned performers.89 min.Doors open at 11:30amMovie showing at 12pmPanel discussion at 1:40pm

Giovanni Aloi examines the history of artists working with animals, and the implications this has for notions of authorship and collaboration.This talk evaluates the challenges involved in human/animal relations that currently unfold in contemporary art. Determined to overcome the objectifying iconographies of animal representation in classical art, contemporary artists are more than ever before committed to envision new human/animal engagement. Notions of authorship, skill, aesthetics, and meaning are thus brought into question by the inclusion of living animals in the processes of art making. In this context, creativity and collaboration become new markers of the limits and potentialities involved in rethinking the very boundaries of artistic practice.

This class will focus on the politically significant yet seldom acknowledged common ground between a section of labor reformers and political abolitionists in New York on questions of land and freedom for all citizens, regardless of race. Through an investigation of personal papers, public lectures, and newspapers of the period leading up to the Mexican-American War, this class will trace the transformation of radical reform traditions from practices divided along racial lines, to movements with shared goals and priorities. We will see how in the lead-up to this conflict, Northern reformers were pushed to develop innovative political and social organizations in an effort to break the pattern of compromise with the slave South, and how Paineite (after Thomas Paine) circles of agrarian radicals and abolitionist networks organized—sometimes in tandem—to form a Northern cross-class opposition to slavery.

This group formed in 2015 out of a desire to offer a different layer into prayer in the congregation. The idea came from a very involved congregant to have people come together to learn to sign and sing a prayer or a song and to offer it to our community during Shabbat services. It was wildly successful and made a huge impact on the community. They are excited about this group continuing to learn and grow and share their songs with others.
