Racism & Civil Rights: A Historical Perspective (BLACK HISTORY MONTH)

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**  

The United States has reached a critical time as civil unrest and mass protests against racist policies become more frequent across the country. The increased discontent and polarization has no clear resolution in sight and continues to challenge and weaken the bonds of our communities. Unfortunately, racism and the struggle for civil rights and equity is not new to the American experience. To help us understand how we arrived at this point, professor David Kalivas will offer a reflection on the history of racism and civil rights in the United States.

About David: David M. Kalivas, Ph.D., currently serves as Senior Adjunct Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Prior to retirement, he was a full-time professor of history at Middlesex Community College for nearly 40 years. For the last thirteen years of his career at the college he served as founding director of the Commonwealth Honors Program. His teaching and research interests cover a broad range of topics in world history with specialties in the history of racism, religion, and cross-cultural interactions. David has a Ph.D. from Northeastern University, a Master's from the University of Connecticut, and Bachelor's Degree from Suffolk University.

Register directly on Zoom HERE.  Presented in collaboration with Libraries Working Towards Social Justice and the State Library of Massachusetts.

Indigenous People, the Fur Trade, and Early Chicago - History At PlayTM, LLC

History At Play™, LLC presents an immersive Living History Experience.

 
Join us while Jon F. Rice introduces audiences to French Canadian fur trader and voyageur, Francois Le Mai, as he and his friend Jean Baptiste Pointe DuSable arrive by canoe to early Chicago.
 
Although nothing more than a little swamp filled with wild garlic and a muddy river running through it, businessman DuSable grasps the importance of that stream: "It's location, my friend!" Through music, song, and dance, we learn of the Meti-society (Creole culture) of Chicago, and why DuSable, a fur trader of African descent and the "Father of Chicago", abandoned his dream.

Registration is required to receive log in details.

Tuesday Evening Book Discussion [ONLINE]

Join us for an online book discussion of Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernadez Castillo

This unforgettable memoir from a prize-winning poet about growing up undocumented in the United States recounts the sorrows and joys of a family torn apart by draconian policies and chronicles one young man’s attempt to build a future in a nation that denies his existence.

When Marcelo Hernandez Castillo was five years old and his family was preparing to cross the border between Mexico and the United States, he suffered temporary, stress-induced blindness. Castillo regained his vision, but quickly understood that he had to move into a threshold of invisibility before settling in California with his parents and siblings. Thus began a new life of hiding in plain sight and of paying extraordinarily careful attention at all times for fear of being truly seen. Before Castillo was one of the most celebrated poets of a generation, he was a boy who perfected his English in the hopes that he might never seem extraordinary.

With beauty, grace, and honesty, Castillo recounts his and his family’s encounters with a system that treats them as criminals for seeking safe, ordinary lives. He writes of the Sunday afternoon when he opened the door to an ICE officer who had one hand on his holster, of the hours he spent making a fake social security card so that he could work to support his family, of his father’s deportation and the decade that he spent waiting to return to his wife and children only to be denied reentry, and of his mother’s heartbreaking decision to leave her children and grandchildren so that she could be reunited with her estranged husband and retire from a life of hard labor.

Children of the Land distills the trauma of displacement, illuminates the human lives behind the headlines and serves as a stunning meditation on what it means to be a man and a citizen.

Read about the book on Good Reads here.

 
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to receive the Zoom log-in details.

The program is free and welcome to all.
