VIRTUAL PROGRAM: Understanding Indigenous Culture with Annawon Weeden

Courageous Conversations presents an online evening with Annawon Weeden, a member of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

  Annawon will share and discuss Native American history in New England, cultural identity, contemporary lifeways and cultural appropriation. Born & raised on the     Narragansett Tribal reservation in Charlestown, Rhode Island, Annawon eventually made his home in his mother’s Wampanoag community in Mashpee, MA. 

  Annawon began sharing the culture of his tribes at a young age. As an adult, Annawon's passion for preserving the culture has been clear throughout decades spent   working at Plimoth Plantation and Boston Children’s Museum. In October 2016, he received a Congressional honor as Culture Bearer for the entire New England region. 

  Currently self-employed, Annawon dedicates much of his time to visiting colleges, museums, libraries, corporations and more, as he continues his efforts to correct   misinformation and misrepresentation of indigenous people. His ability to share his tribal culture has been sought after by institutions such as the Smithsonian, National   Geographic, Scholastic, PBS, the History/Discovery Channel, Nike, Harvard and many other corporate, educational and environmental organizations.

  Join us to honor Indigenous People’s Day and take the opportunity to share in the Q&A during this informative evening.

Virtual Author Visit - Noe Alvarez

Author Noe Alvarez was recently recognized by the Massachusetts Center for the Book as one of Massachusetts's must-read authors of the year. Join Alvarez for a presentation on his latest book, "Spirit Run: A 6000-Mile Marathon Through North America's Stolen Land" via Zoom.

  Noe Álvarez, the son of working-class Mexican immigrants, fled a life of labor in fruit-packing plants to run a four-month-long Indigenous marathon from Canada to Guatemala that pushed him to his limits. He'll discuss his harrowing journey -- overcoming hunger, thirst, and fear, as well as the dangers he encountered, including stone-throwing motorists and a mountain lion. Alvarez will also share his reimagining of North America and his place in it, exploring Indigenous and working-class humanity in a capitalist society where oil extraction, deforestation, and substance abuse wreck communities.

  Noe Alvarez holds degrees in philosophy and creative writing from Whitman College and Emerson College, respectively. Alvarez studied conflict analysis, peacemaking, and conflict resolution at American University and in Northern Ireland, received a fellowship at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, and researched U.S. drug policy, military aid, and human rights issues in Colombia’s Putumayo jungles. He lives in Boston, where, until recently, he worked as a security officer at one of the nation’s oldest libraries, the Boston Athenæum. Learn more about Alvarez HERE.

VIRTUAL Author Visit with John Forti 'The Heirloom Gardener'

 We welcome garden lecturer John Forti to share his new book The heirloom gardener : traditional plants & skills for the modern world and gardening wisdom via Zoom.

 These days, we all need some good news and a way to participate in meaningful change. The Heirloom Gardener is a book for gardeners who want to deepen their   knowledge and improve life for families, pollinators and wildlife in their own backyards.  It’s a love poem to the earth; a map to the art of living intentionally and a   guidepost for environmental gardeners and artisans.  It unearths old-ways, storied plants and artisanal life-skills; like seed-saving, herbalism, foraging, distillation,   ethnobotany and organics which contribute to a new 21st century arts and crafts movement. With woodcuts from Caldecott Medal artist Mary Azarian, The Heirloom   Garden offers a dose of wild hope for a weary nation.

 John Forti www.jforti.com is a garden historian and ethnobotanist who has directed gardens for Plimoth Plantation Museum, Strawbery Banke Museum,   Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and Bedrock Gardens. As a Slow Food Slow Food USA Governor and biodiversity specialist, his preservation work has helped   to restore countless native and heirloom plants and has brought traditional artisanal practices to modern thinking.  He has won numerous awards for historic garden   preservation, children’s garden design, herbal and historical education and the 2021 Award of Excellence from National Garden Clubs, the largest volunteer   gardening organization in the world. This book was inspired by his posts as 'The Heirloom Gardener - John Forti' which go out regularly to millions on Facebook that   value his uniquely curated blend of history, horticulture, environmentalism, and botanical art. His book can be purchased at Andover Bookstore, or from any online   supplier.

VIRTUAL PROGRAM Decolonizing: Placing Indigenous Peoples in the Conversation

Courageous Conversations and Libraries Working Towards Social Justice present an online evening with Claudia Fox Tree (Arawak/Yurumein) and Debby Irving.

Join Claudia Fox Tree and Debby Irving for an online conversation as they explore how U.S. narratives have shaped their understanding of themselves, one another, and the complex world we live in. No two conversations are alike as they gather with no agenda, simply modeling the conversations of a cross-racial relationship. Current events, in their own lives and in the larger world, inspire the organic conversation they engage in. Audience engagement and participation will be facilitated by a moderated question and answer session following their talk.

  Professional educator, Claudia Fox Tree, M.Ed. (Arawak/Yurumein) teaches courses and workshops on transforming curriculum and culturally responsive teaching practices. She also leads conversations "un-erasing" Native American First Nations People (FNP). She gives voice to Indigenous experiences (past and present) and asks allies and co-conspirators to come on the journey with her. Her presentations feature discussions on identity, culture, contributions, stereotypes, and historical inaccuracies.

 

 

 

  Debby Irving is a racial justice educator and writer and author of Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race. Debby leads workshops and educates and consults with organizations seeking to create racial equity.

Virtual Author Visit - Ted Reinstein

Join author and longtime "Chronicle" reporter Ted Reinstein for a presentation on his latest book, Before Brooklyn: The Unsung Heroes Who Helped Break Baseball's Color Barrier, via Zoom. 

 In April of 1945, exactly two years before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball, liberal Boston City Councilman Izzy Muchnick persuaded the Red Sox to try out three black players in return for a favorable vote to allow the team to play on Sundays. The Red Sox got the councilman’s much-needed vote, but the tryout was a sham; the three players would get no closer to the major leagues. It was a lost battle in a war that was ultimately won by Robinson in 1947. This book tells the story of the little-known heroes who fought segregation in baseball, from communist newspaper reporters to the Pullman car porters who saw to it that black newspapers espousing integration in professional sports reached the homes of blacks throughout the country. It also reminds us that the first black player in professional baseball was not Jackie Robinson but Moses Fleetwood Walker in 1884, and that for a time integrated teams were not that unusual. And then, as segregation throughout the country hardened, the exclusion of blacks in baseball quietly became the norm, and the battle for integration began anew.

Join author and longtime "Chronicle" reporter Ted Reinstein for a presentation on his latest book, Before Brooklyn: The Unsung Heroes Who Helped Break Baseball's Color Barrier, via Zoom. 

 In April of 1945, exactly two years before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball, liberal Boston City Councilman Izzy Muchnick persuaded the Red Sox to try out three black players in return for a favorable vote to allow the team to play on Sundays. The Red Sox got the councilman’s much-needed vote, but the tryout was a sham; the three players would get no closer to the major leagues. It was a lost battle in a war that was ultimately won by Robinson in 1947. This book tells the story of the little-known heroes who fought segregation in baseball, from communist newspaper reporters to the Pullman car porters who saw to it that black newspapers espousing integration in professional sports reached the homes of blacks throughout the country. It also reminds us that the first black player in professional baseball was not Jackie Robinson but Moses Fleetwood Walker in 1884, and that for a time integrated teams were not that unusual.
