misc_none 6:30 PM A Public Talk with Frye Gaillard and Dr. Carl Cunningham Jr. Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Legacy of the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama

Frye Gaillard, writer in residence at the University of South Alabama and author of Cradle of Freedom: Alabama and the Movement That Changed America, and Dr. Carl Cunningham Jr., Director of Multicultural Affairs at USA and advisor for the African American Student Association and Mobile Kappa League, will draw from their personal and professional experiences to speak about the history and ongoing legacy of the Civil Rights Movement in Alabama.

In response to many of the works from Alabama Contemporary Art Center’s exhibition, History Refused to Die, Gaillard will draw from his historical research and first-hand experiences as a reporter for the Charlotte Observer in the 1960s to explore how these artworks help to build understanding of and compassion for the victims of hate crime and institutional racism.

Dr. Cunningham Jr., whose work is centered in the development of leadership skills and cultural awareness of young African Americans, will offer a contemporary and personal perspective on these subjects as an African American man in the South, and will discuss his own family’s history, which is deeply rooted in the racial story of Alabama.

For more information, please contact Amanda Solley, Education and Program Manager at Alabama Contemporary Art Center, at 251-208-5658.

Join Mobile Opera’s Stacey Driskell and Scott Wright for a discussion that relates the work of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi to its literary history and its modern application to the stage.  

Gianni Schicchi, one of the most popular of all operas, is a comedy in one act by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Giovacchino Forzano.

It was composed in 1917–18 and loosely based on an incident mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy. More particularly, it follows the plot of a story told in an 1866 edition of Dante’s work in which Gianni Schicchi sets out, by trickery, to defeat the Last Will And Testament of Buoso Donati.

The work is the third part of Puccini's Il trittico — three one-act operas, originally presented together.

You can read the libretto online at www.MobileOpera.org. For more information, call (251) 432-6772.
