Conference | Remembering Ernst Toller (1893-1939): Exiles and Refugees between Europe and the US


The spring of 1919 saw the brutal end of the Bavarian soviet republic that had emerged as part of Germany’s November Revolution. Twenty years later, on May 22, 1939, Ernst Toller, one of the leaders of that revolution and republic, committed suicide at the Mayflower Hotel in New York, where he was living in exile from Nazi Germany. This conference is on German-speaking émigrés in New York and the United States, and their legacy for the exiles and refugees who are arriving in the U.S. and Europe today. Presenters from Austria include Helga Schreckenberger (University of Vermont), Frank Stern (University of Vienna), Veronika Schuchter as well as Irene Zanol (University of Innsbruck).

Concert | Grammy-Nominated Soulful R&B


Long time Lower East Side resident Emily King may have moved upstate to Woodstock, but hers will always be an East Side Story. The child of musicians, dropped out of school at 16 and cut her teeth at local haunts CBGB and The Bitter End. In the fifteen years since she signed her first record deal with Clive Davis’ J Records, her distinct brand of soulful R&B has been nominated for a Grammy and led to collaborations and performances with Nas, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu. She’s joined by Durand Jones and the Indications, a soul group with a throwback sound that channels the likes of Jackie Wilson and Curtis Mayfield. And Brooklyn singer-songwriter, Madison McFerrin, daughter of jazz legend Bobby McFerrin and sister to Taylor McFerrin, will provide an opening set of what Questlove has dubbed “Soulappella.” Her unique a cappella take on soul music led Pitchfork to delcare she’s “making a cappella cool again.
