Staged Reading | Babette in Retreat with Broadway Actors (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


Babette was one of the most famous courtesans of her day, but now at 50, she has decided to retire to her country house, wanting to live in isolation, with only her beloved maid for company. After a lifetime of pleasing others, she's ready to please herself. Unfortunately, her plans are destroyed even before her own arrival, as one by one those closest to her all come to the cottage wanting for something. It's a farce about love and responsibility to each other.

Discussion | The Great Debate: Selfless or Selfish? (virtual)


Seven years ago, news anchor Richard Lui walked into his supervisor's office at NBC's 30 Rock headquarters, prepared to give up his dream job. Having just learned of his father's Alzheimer's, Lui wanted to be with him during his important last years, even if it meant setting aside his career. So Lui reduced his work hours and joined 53 million Americans in becoming a family caregiver. In his new book, Enough About Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness, Lui explores the science behind selflessness and practical ways to apply it everyday at home, at work, and in relationships. Yet he observes, America suffers from a selfish pandemic where hate and violence has become cheap. He shares behind the scenes stories of the heroes who have shown him how small, practical choices can stop this selfish pandemic. How his coverage of breaking news over the years like the Paris terrorist attacks, racial strife, and COVID-19, he met those who rose above to be helpful, self-sacrificing and generous in the face of tragedy and loss. So what are we? Selfless of selfish? Join a conversation with Liu; New York Times-bestselling author Nancy French; David French, whose latest book explores how to reach national unity; and Dr. Jamil Zaki, a leading researcher on the science of empathy.

Slide Lecture | The Lost World of African-American Cantors 1915-1953 (virtual)


The history of Black-Jewish cultural interaction primarily focuses on how Jews adopted and adapted Black vernacular music -- ragtime, jazz, swing, R&B and blues, etc. -- as performers, promoters, managers, club owners and record labels. However, what has never before been explored were the African-Americans who performed Yiddish and cantorial music in and for the Jewish community, in theaters on record, radio and in concert between the World Wars. The talk with musicologist Henry Sapoznik will honor the memory of now forgotten Black cantors - Mendele der Shvartzer Khazn, Reb Dovid Kalistrita HaCohen der Falash, Abraham Ben Benjamin Franklin, Thomas LaRue Jones and Goldye di Shvartze Khaznte the first - and only -- Black woman cantor. The talk will feature dozens of historic graphics and translations of period Yiddish newspaper previews, ads and reviews and the playing of the one known 1923 Yiddish and Hebrew recording of Thomas Jones LaRue.
