City Walk | Historic Brooklyn Bridge Tour


On May 24, 1883, journalist Montgomery Schuyler said "It so happens that the work which is likely to be our most durable monument, and to convey some knowledge of us to the most remote posterity, is a work of bare utility; not a shrine, not a fortress, not a palace, but a bridge." This tour will tell the story of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, and examine its ever-present historical, technological, and cultural impact. Note: this tour is held early, as to avoid the massive crowds that the bridge continues to attract, 135 years after its completion.

Festival | Happy 100th Birthday, Lawrence Ferlinghetti!


March 24th is Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s 100th birthday. Poet, painter, socialist activist, and the co-founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers, Ferlinghetti has dedicated his life to poetry and free expression over the course of the US’s shifting attitudes towards censorship in the media in the 20th century. As the defendant in the 1957 Howl Obscenity Trial, Ferlinghetti was backed by the American Civil Liberties Union when he won the case in which California State Superior Court Judge Clayton Horn ruled that Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and Other Poems was of “redeeming social importance” and therefore not obscene. Paying tribute to this historic moment and honoring Ferlinghetti’s life and ongoing work, Howl! Happening is delighted to host in New York City a 100th birthday party celebration in association with City Lights Bookstore and Knopf Doubleday publishers. The day will include a launch of Ferlinghetti’s new novel Little Boy. Featuring Ed Sanders, Hettie Jones, David Henderson, Eileen Myles, Bob Holman, Anne Waldman, Helixx C. Armageddon and more. The afternoon of celebrations will also feature a screening of Chris Felver‘s documentary Ferlinghetti as well as clips from Bob Holman’s United States of Poetry and the NET documentary USA: Poetry.

Play | The Woods: The Narratives On American Landscape


The Woods explores our learned relationships to the "American" landscape, who’s taught to love it? Who's taught to fear it? Who's allowed to claim it? And the consequences of those cultural narratives have on young Black Americans, only just learning what being Black in today's "American landscape" might mean for them. Going forward, might there be a way to manifest a more positive narrative surrounding the natural environment, for the sake of all of those next in line to inherit it?..." A new play by Jahna Ferron-Smith. Directed by Colette Robert. Featuring Daniel Abeles, Lydian Blossom, Will Dagger, Bjorn duPaty, Starr Kirkland, Julius Powell, Drew Lewis and Naomi Lorrain.
