Jacqueline Woodson is best known for Miracle's Boys, and her titles Brown Girl Dreaming, After Tupac and D Foster, Feathers, and Show Way.

Tour | Trump Tour


Within the midtown area one is able to get the full spectrum of the Trump story and his rise to power. The tour will focus on three main things. The first is looking into the man himself and his history. He is well-connected with organized crime, illicit activity and corrupt dealings, and looking into his history in New York gives a window into that. The second is how he, as a symbol for real estate at large, has massively changed New York’s built environment to cater to a billionaire class at the expense of working New Yorkers. The third, potentially most important, is looking at the systemic nature of Trump’s rise in New York. What Trump has done is about a lot more than the single individual, and by looking at the agencies, actors and government institutions that have supported his rise, we can come away with a larger societal understanding of justice in our country.

Opening Reception | Everything That Is Solid Dissolves Into Air: A Summer Art Installation


Marit Wolters's Everything That Is Solid Dissolves Into Air envisions an optimistic image of our society while inviting us to reflect on the transformative potential established by the relational processes stemming from social issues such as migration.   By breaking up standardized methods of processing and assembling materials, the Vienna-based artist Marit Wolters questions the relation we have with the structures that constitute our society. Architecture decisively influences our behavior, our feelings and the way we perceive life. Its structures provide information on social ideas, processes and functional mechanisms. For her solo exhibition, Wolters uses materials that are known from the construction industry: Aerated concrete sculptures and reinforced steel structures are created in a dialectic process of assembly and disassembly, demolding and reformulation.

Spanning sites such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park, Naima Green's photographs present quiet, quotidian portraits—nuanced compositions that revel in her subjects' subtle gestures, varied postures, and soft gazes. Documenting a community that is tight-knit yet sprawling in scope, Green's project deeply engages with the historical and social role of photographic portrait, as a tool deployed to communicate, classify, or reinforce particular notions of subjectivity.

Author Reading | Famous historian asks: Has The Gay Movement Failed?


Despite fifty years of LGBTQ progress, activists' more radical goals may have fallen by the wayside. A renowned historian and activist of the American left and LGBTQ movements, Martin Duberman recounts the progressive vision for society as a whole and critiques the left's failure to embrace the queer potential for social transformation. Not without hope, Duberman's history lesson can shine a light towards a truly inclusive and expansive society.   Duberman will be joined in conversation by Jason Baumann, Coordinator of Humanities and LGBT Collections. Registration does not guarantee admission. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance. The Program Room opens at 6 PM.

Discussion | The New Yorker writer asks: Is Capitalism a Threat to Democracy?


During the 20th century, the relationship between capitalism and democracy seemed (to the mainstream) a solid one. Yet, not all felt this way. In 1944 an economist called Karl Polanyi wrote a book which challenged this idea in the wake of the events which lead to fascist Europe. Writer Caleb Crain makes an analysis of Polanyi’s relevance to our own turbulent times through a review of author Robert Kuttner’s Can Democracy Survive Global Capitalism? Crain has published book reviews and essays in publications including The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The London Review of Books, The Nation, The New York Times Book Review, Out and The New Republic. He also published the non-fiction book American Sympathy: Men, Friendship, and Literature in the New Nation.
