Tour | Tour of Gracie Mansion, Home of New York's Mayors


In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” This tour repeats every Monday.

Lecture | A Greenwich Village Legacy: The Anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911


This very special presentation, on the anniversary of the actual March 25th event, will begin with a walk down Fifth Avenue to the site of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire for a brief talk before returning for the 7:30PM lecture. Now part of New York University's campus just east of Washington Square Park, this building was the locale for one of the most significant tragedies in American history pre-9-11. This event has influenced many aspects of our lives today - in the garment industry, immigration and life in NYC, labor laws and unions, elevator and fire safety and more.   There were over 500 employees at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory - most were young women, most were recent immigrants. On March 25, 1911, a fire broke out on the 8th floor. Workers ran to the fire escape. It collapsed, dropping them to their deaths. People on the street watched as the workers began to jump out the windows. Fire trucks arrived but their ladders only reached the 6th floor. The elevators ran as long as they could as workers pressed into the cars; some tumbled down the elevator shaft. In the end 146 people died.    As a family descendant of one of the victims, 18 year old Annie Nicholas, Debbie Wells lectures about the factory and the fire, as well as her journey to uncover her personal family connection through speaking to historians at Cornell University, New York Times and HBO, and especially the Remember the Triangle Coalition whose latest project is to create a Triangle Fire Memorial. The memorial was designed by an award-winning architect and plans are in the works to erect it on the building site as a meaningful tribute.

Author Reading | Two Novelists Chart The Connections Between Motherhood, Migration, Race, And Identity


Irina Reyn's Mother Country sheds light on the difficulty of motherhood and how mothers examine their values for themselves and their children. Nadia's new life in Brooklyn reveals how the challenges of immigration and motherhood leave mothers to question: Who am I? Who do I want to become?   Race and culture naturally become part of the examination, as in Rumaan Alam's That Kind of Mother, an exploration of race, class, and family.  In the novel, Rebecca, a white middle-class woman with a newborn, steps forward to adopt the child of her nanny, Priscilla, who dies suddenly in childbirth. Rebbeca "felt like an imposter ever on the verge of being unmasked." Her new experience as a mother with a black son prompts her to question: How has this affected my life? How will this impact the life of my children?   Reyn and Alam discuss  motherhood, the relationship between parenting and identity, and how literature can speak to these issues.

Discussion | Where Has 'Japanese Women’s Language' Gone?


During the bubble economy of the mid 1980s through early 1990s, Japanese women’s language grew with public passion, incentivizing Japanese women with the promise of upward mobility. But in the post-bubble economy, public discourse on women’s language lost steam in the media. The relationship between language and gender shifted during this time both in Japanese politics and economics. Using Gilles Deleuze's notions on control society, this event will ask how post-bubble Japanese society uses language as a vehicle for gender inequality. More importantly, they will discuss how to forge a new method of critique to disrupt linguistic sexism.

Author Reading | What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker: A Memoir in Essays


From the cofounder of VerySmartBrothas.com, and one of the most read writers on race and culture at work today, a provocative and humorous memoir-in-essays that explores the ever-shifting definitions of what it means to be Black (and male) in America For Damon Young, existing while Black is an extreme sport. The act of possessing black skin while searching for space to breathe in America is enough to induce a ceaseless state of angst where questions such as “How should I react here, as a professional black person?” and “Will this white person’s potato salad kill me?” are forever relevant. What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Blacker chronicles Young’s efforts to survive while battling and making sense of the various neuroses his country has given him.

“What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker is striking in its storytelling and imagery, in its honesty and humor, in its self-reflection and self-criticism, in its Blackness and humanity. Damon Young produced an unobstructed and unsanitized memoir that few people have the courage to write and all people should be encouraged to read." -- Ibram X.
