Film | Risk: Jazz Postwar, Rise of Bebop, Charlie Parker (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


The postwar years bring America to a level of prosperity unimaginable a decade before, but the Cold War threat of nuclear annihilation makes these anxious years as well. In jazz, this underlying tension will be reflected in the broken rhythms and dissonant melodies of bebop, and in the troubled life of bebop's biggest star, Charlie Parker. The streaming is available until Feb 7th.

Tour | Barcelona: Sagrada Familia - The Church of Antoni Gaudí Live (virtual)


The Sagrada Familia is one of the most distinctive churches in Europe, and perhaps even the world. Join the tour guide Josep to learn about the genius behind this architectural masterpiece. He will also answer any questions you may have about this iconic building. Why and how did it start? Which tricks did he use to be able to calculate such "impossible" structures 130 years ago? Why 18 towers? When will it be finished? The engaging explanations will be intertwined with the architect's life, family history, and under which circumstances “the architect of god” came to pass away.

Book Discussion | Ida B. the Queen: The Extraordinary Life and Legacy of Ida B. Wells, with The Author (virtual)


Journalist. Suffragist. Antilynching crusader. In 1862, Ida B. Wells was born enslaved in Holly Springs, Mississippi. In 2020, she won a Pulitzer Prize posthumously. Ida B. the Queen tells the awe-inspiring story of an inspirational woman who was often overlooked and underestimated--a woman who refused to exit a train car meant for white passengers; a woman brought to light the horrors of lynching in America; a woman who cofounded the NAACP. Written by Wells's great-granddaughter Michelle Duster, this "warm remembrance of a civil rights icon" (Kirkus Reviews) is a unique visual celebration of Wells's life, and of the Black experience.
