Lecture | The Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative (online)


In June 2021, Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland announced the Federal Indian Boarding School Initiative, a comprehensive effort to recognize the troubled legacy of federal Indian boarding school policies, with the goal of addressing their intergenerational impact and to shed light on the traumas of the past. The federal Indian boarding school policies introduced a new architecture and program to American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities in the 19th and 20th centuries. In this program, Joaquin Gallegos, Special Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs at the US Department of Interior, will summarize the findings of this extensive and first-ever inventory of federally operated Indian boarding schools.

Lecture | When Government is Opaque: Empire State Development and the Penn Station Redevelopment Project (in-person and online)


A lecture by Elizabeth M. Marcello, a Senior Research Analyst at Reinvent Albany, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that advocates for transparent and accountable New York State government. At Reinvent Albany, Mercello advocates for laws that curb business subsidies, improve open data and the Freedom of Information Law, and implement anti-corruption reforms. Her academic research focuses on city-state relations, economic development, and governance. Transparency and accountability are basic tenets of democracy. Public planners extol the open manner in which plans are developed and implemented; the government provides information, the public is consulted, and plans change and adapt based on public input. This, of course, does not always happen. When carried out by public authorities, plans are not subject to the same disclosure and accountability rules as when carried out by typical governmental agencies. Public authorities are a type of special purpose government that can supplement routine government functions by building infrastructure, maintaining bridges, building stadiums and convention centers, managing public housing, and running mass transit systems. These entities were created during the Progressive Era to isolate planning from politics and allow planning expertise to flourish, but does their use help or hurt democratic planning efforts? Using the ongoing case of the New York Empire State Development Corporation’s Penn Station Redevelopment project in Manhattan, Marcello shows how public authorities operate outside of legislative politics and move projects quickly from concept to completion. Potential reforms are offered as solutions to the many challenges that public authorities pose to democratic planning efforts.

Poetry Reading | Power through Poetry: Voices to End Hunger (online)


Over 800 million people globally live in food insecurity, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, despite the fact that sufficient food is produced to "feed the world." Food insecurity is the result of a combination of factors, including political instability and policy decisions, war, climate change and, recently, the Covid-19 pandemic. While food insecurity, or hunger, tends to be concentrated in global regions with relatively less political and economic power, people and communities in wealthy and more powerful regions also experience these realities. This event will showcase powerful poems by 5-10 poets from New York City and beyond as they demonstrate the role that poetry is playing in speaking back to hunger. We’ll also hear from several food systems and social justice leaders who will briefly share insights about the heart-grabbing and mind-changing difference that poetry plays – or could play – in their efforts. The poems and commentaries will be followed by Q&A among the audience and panelists. Attendees will leave the event having heard, seen and felt – having learned – how poetry can contribute to strategies to fight hunger and food insecurity.

Lecture | Environmental Threats to Continuity: Colonialism, Climate Migration and the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (online)


Lauren Grant's lecture situates the current crisis of climate migration within the genealogies of coloniality and historicizes the making of the climate crisis, as it is tied to colonialism, dispossession, displacement, expropriation and the never-ending quest for capital by Euro-American colonial powers. Lauren Grant spearheads geographical and thematic research and reporting on climate migration at Earth Refuge. She develops connections and partnerships with research practitioners, institutes and projects that contribute to Earth Refuge’s reports and other research. Lauren represents the up and coming generation of advocates and researchers in the fields of climate migration, women’s, Indigenous and minority rights, violence, conflict, genocide and development.

Discussion | Out in Politics (in-person and online)


In the 2020 election, more openly LGBTQ people ran for elected office than ever before in the history of the country. According to the Victory Fund, a national organization dedicated to electing LGBTQ leaders, the election included 1,006 openly LGBTQ candidates. Alongside this history-making surge in LGBTQ representation has come a spike across the nation in anti-LGBTQ legislation, according to advocates. This has included Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law and other laws targeting access to gender-affirming care. Bringing together openly LGBTQ people who have run, are running, or already serving in elected or appointed office in New York, as well as leading advocates and experts, this conversation will examine the challenges and opportunities that come with being “out”—both on the campaign trail and in office—amid heightened discrimination and violence toward the LGBTQ community.

Book Discussion | The Betrothed: A Modern Italian Classic


The timeless masterpiece from Alessandro Manzoni, the father of modern Italian literature, in the first new English-language translation in fifty years, hailed as "a landmark literary occasion" by Jhumpa Lahiri in her preface to the edition. The Betrothed is a cornerstone of Italian culture, language, and literature. Published in its final form in 1842, the novel has inspired generations of Italian readers and writers. Giuseppe Verdi composed his majestic Requiem Mass in honor of Manzoni. Italo Calvino called the novel "a classic that has never ceased shaping reality in Italy" while Umberto Eco praised its author as a "most subtle critic and analyst of languages." The Betrothed has been celebrated by Primo Levi and Natalia Ginzburg, and is one of Pope Francis's favorite books. But, until now, it has remained relatively unknown to English readers. In the fall of 1628, two young lovers are forced to flee their village on the shores of Lake Como after a powerful lord prevents their marriage, plunging them into the maelstrom of history. Manzoni draws on actual people and events to create an unforgettable fresco of Italian life and society. In this greatest of historical novels, he takes the reader on a journey through the Spanish occupation of Milan, the ravages of war, class tensions, social injustice, religious faith, and a plague that devastates northern Italy. But within Manzoni's epic tale, readers will also hear powerful echoes of our own day.

Discussion | Critical Lens: How a Jobs Program Put New York Artists to Work (in-person and online)


A panel discussion spotlighting the Municipal Archives' CETA Artists Project collection, as well as the history and significance of the federal Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) jobs program (1973-1981). CETA employed over 10,000 artists and cultural workers across the nation, and funded artist projects for 600 NYC visual artists, poets, dancers, performers, and photographers, among many other specialists in connection with New York area schools, libraries, museums, nursing homes, prisons, and more. Learn about this often forgotten yet critical history and hear City Lore, Artists Alliance Inc., and Cultural Council Foundation CETA alumni - including members of the Documentation Unit - discuss CETA's legacy. Discover how CETA's employment of artists serves as a precedent for envisioning how we can create sustained investment in artists today, permanently infusing the creativity and resourcefulness of artists into our workforce.

Lecture | Two Views of Universal Suffrage: Anticolonial and Neoliberal


In this event, Kevin Duong will reconstruct the terror early neoliberal thinkers experienced in the face of the tremendous suffrage expansions sweeping the British and French empires after the 1940s. He argues that such terrors incited neoliberals to an alternative theory of universal suffrage. Against “one person, one vote” which would empower enfranchised majorities to restructure national economies in the name of postcolonial socialist planning, neoliberals offered their own economized alternative: “every penny represents a ballot.” In this neoliberal vision of universal suffrage, the enfranchised citizen better expressed their voice, not at the ballot box, but through the consumption of services and goods. Two unexpected results emerged. The first involved a deeper mutation in democratic theory. Where universal suffrage was once expected to enunciate the political "voice of the people,” by the 1960s and 1970s universal suffrage became increasingly understood in non-sovereign market terms: as an information processing system capable of aggregating and coordinating individual preferences without a dangerous “voice of the people” emerging. The second unexpected result followed: African economic developmentalism, because democratically authorized by a mass political franchise, became the bête noire of Cold War liberal anxieties about “totalitarian” popular sovereignty.

Author Esther Armah argues that the crucial missing piece to racial healing and sustainable equity is emotional justice—a new racial healing language to help us do our emotional work. This work is part of the emotional reckoning we must navigate if racial healing is to be more than a dream. We all—white, Black, Brown—have our emotional work that we need to do. But that work is not the same for all of us.

The curated anthology of selected writings reflects and celebrates Dick Gregory's wisdom and wit, and includes previously unavailable transcriptions and excerpts taken from his sixteen books, fifteen albums and audio compilations, and more than 1,200 hours of archival video, including lectures, interviews, and comedic performances.

Richard Claxton "Dick" Gregory was one of the pioneering satirists of his generation, a reformer and spokesperson for the downtrodden and forgotten who dedicated his life to speaking unadulterated truth -- and to improving ordinary lives. A human rights and environmental activist, fearsome and uncompromising social critic, and bestselling author, Gregory aimed not only to educate souls, but to liberate them. His words shaped a generation and continue to offer wisdom to enlighten and inspire a new activist age.

Discussion | Struggles Over the Narcotic City: Histories of Drug-Policing Since the 70s


On both sides of the Atlantic, drug use is a highly contested issue in urban public space. During this roundtable, participants will discuss and analyze the medical, political, and spatial aspects of governing intoxicating substances in New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, and beyond. How have conflicts around public drug use impacted the social and cultural fabric of cities in the late 20th and early 21st centuries? How are urban policies intertwined with addiction treatment and police interventions of contested sites? For this roundtable, they will bring together experts from the US and Europe, to explore the ways in which particular user groups (such as ethnic minorities) have been targeted or treated differently, and assess the impact of drug policy strategies on the wellbeing of users. Are there noticeable differences or similarities between US and European strategies and approaches? Furthermore, what kind of opposition and activism have they generated? How does the governance of drug use play into forms of urban exclusion, marginalization, and integration - particularly in relation to issues of gender, class, race, and disability? Roundtable with inputs by Gemma Blok (Open University, Netherlands), Samuel K. Roberts (Columbia University, New York), Matthew Vaz (CUNY, New York), Frederieke Westerheide (Halle University Halle). Moderation: Stefan Hohne (KWI Essen). The roundtable format will allow the audience and panelists to exchange ideas and experiences in an informal setting - sitting around a large table.

In Ousmane K. Power-Greene's thought-provoking and suspenseful tale, Allegra Douglass is finally ready to tell her version of what happened with a white supremacist named Matthew Strong. From the beginning, Allie had the clues—found in possibly-connected disappearances of other young Black women; in a series of recently restored plantation homes; in letters outlining an uprising; in maps of slave trade routes and old estates; in hidden caves and buried tunnels; in a confessional that should never have existed—and then Allie herself disappears.
