Author Reading | X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II (virtual)


In June 1942, Winston Churchill and his chief of staff devised an unusual plan: a new commando unit made up of Jewish refugees in the United Kingdom. Called "X Troop," the unit included a motley group of intellectuals, artists, and athletes from Germany and Austria. Many had lost their families and homes, and would stop at nothing to defeat the Nazis. The top-secret unit is the subject of Dr. Leah Garrett's new book. Drawing on extensive original research, including interviews with the last surviving members, Garrett follows this unique band of brothers from Germany to England and back again, with stops at British internment camps, the beaches of Normandy, the battlefields of Italy and Holland, and the hellscape of Terezin concentration camp--the scene of one of the most dramatic, untold rescues of the war. Garrett will be in conversation with Kim Masters, veteran entertainment journalist, editor-at-large of The Hollywood Reporter, whose father Peter Masters was a member of the X Troop.

Author Reading | One Mighty and Irresistible Tide: The Epic Struggle Over American Immigration (virtual)


America wasn't always a nation of immigrants. Though the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act opened doors to people from all over the world, just 40 years earlier, the 1924 Immigration Act had banned people from nearly all of Asia from coming here, and choked levels of immigration from everywhere else, particularly southern and eastern Europe. In the intervening 40 years, a long and concerted attempt to abolish the law was made by a fascinating cast of lawmakers, activists, and presidents.  The New York Times' Jia Lynn Yang charts this struggle in One Mighty and Irresistible Tide, and demonstrates how the 1965 law was one of the most transformative in the country's history. But it also had impacts no one imagined, including laying the groundwork for much of the viciousness that reigns over immigration arguments today. Yang speaks about the paradoxes and the promises of the American idea of itself as a nation of immigrants.

Screening | They Still Want To Kill Us: A Short Film on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre (virtual)


A group of arts institutions across the nation will premiere the short film They Still Want To Kill Us, an aria by composer and activist Daniel Bernard Roumain, performed by mezzo-soprano J'Nai Bridges, and directed by filmmaker Yoram Savion, to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre as well as the one year anniversary of George Floyd's murder. It speaks truth to what transpired in 1921 at the Tulsa Race Massacre, an atrocity all but deleted from history until recently. The program will include the premiere of the piece by Savion, a discussion with DBR and Bridges, moderated by Jamilla Deria and a statement by Damario Solomon-Simmons of the Justice for Greenwood Foundation.

Concert | Our Time Is Now: Spoken Word and Music (virtual)


Lincoln Center presents Jennifer Koh's Our Time Is Now, a specially commissioned performance curated by classical violinist Jennifer Koh. This hour-long salon speaks to the ongoing trauma borne by New York City's AAPI and Black communities and their shared response of creative excellence in the face of adversity. Koh is joined on stage with pianist Vijay Iyer and poets Cindy Tran and Simone White in a collaboration that juxtaposes spoken word with the world premieres of four musical works--composed for the Alone Together project--by Courtney Bryan, LaTasha Bundy, Ken Ueno, and Amadeus Regucera. They're proud to share this powerfully moving evening of performances, which are an urgent call to denounce hate in all its forms. Tonight's event is dedicated to George Floyd and all victims of racial discrimination.
