Historically Speaking, A Virtual Lecture Series 

Presented by the Monmouth County Historical Association. Co-Sponsored by the Monmouth County Library 

Kevin Coyne Presents Nathaniel, William and Bruce: Three Men, Three Centuries, One Town 

Local history is not just local – it intersects in powerful and surprising ways with the nation’s history, and its small stories can teach us much about those larger stories, too. Nathaniel Scudder, William Dayton, Bruce Springsteen – three men, three centuries, one town.

Nathaniel Scudder was a Princeton-educated physician who gave up his medical practice in Freehold to fight for the American colonies’ independence from Great Britain. He signed the Articles of Confederation, led his regiment at the Battle of Monmouth, and was killed by a British raiding party in the final days of the Revolution, the only member of the Continental Congress to die in combat.

William Dayton was a Princeton-educated lawyer who practiced in Freehold and was the vice-presidential nominee in 1856 on the Republican Party’s first national ticket, running with John Fremont of California. The runner-up for the Republican vice-presidential nomination that year – Abraham Lincoln – later appointed Dayton during the Civil War as ambassador to France, where he helped keep the French from joining the Confederate cause.

Freehold High School-educated Bruce Springsteen, descendant of Monmouth-born veterans of the Revolution and the Civil War, has chronicled the lives of Americans over the last 50 years in his songs and stories, and along the way has introduced his vast audience to the town he shares with Scudder and Dayton.

What can their stories – joined with all the other stories from this one small town – tell us about America’s story?​

Kevin Coyne is a respected journalist and adjunct professor at the Columbia Journalism School. He has authored several books, including the acclaimed Marching Home: To War and Back with the Men of One American Town, about six WWII veterans from Freehold. He has served on the Borough Council, where he helped establish the town’s Historic Preservation Commission and has served as Freehold’s Borough historian for over twenty years.

For all of these amazing accomplishments, Kevin can more simply be described as a son of Freehold. This gives him an innate understanding of local culture that goes beyond the archives and the books. He is a storyteller and he loves history, especially local history, which shines through when he speaks about it.

Please join us for an encore presentation of  Author Talk with Alex Tresniowski (originally aired earlier this month)

The Rope: A True Story of Murder, Heroism, and the Dawn of the NAACP by The New York Times bestselling author  Alex Tresniowski

Live & Virtual - Join author Alex Tresniowski to discuss his book, The Rope.

In the tranquil, segregated  town of Asbury Park, New Jersey, in November, 1910, a ten-year-old schoolgirl Marie Smith is brutally murdered. A black handyman and ex-boxer named Tom Williams is arrested for the crime, and quickly presumed guilty by the white mob that gathers around the town jail, ready for a lynching. But did Tom Williams really do it?

Occurring halfway between the end of the Civil War in 1865 and the formal beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in 1954, the Tom Williams case became only the third legal case ever handled by a new civil rights organization christened just one year earlier—the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or the NAACP. The Marie Smith murder sits at the historic intersection of sweeping national forces—religious extremism, class struggle, the infancy of criminal forensics, and America’s Jim Crow racial violence.

The Rope also tells the story of Ida. B. Wells, the pioneering journalist, political activist and public speaker whose bravery and persistence led directly to the creation of the NAACP. The book traces of Wells' investigation of one lynching—and dramatic, last-second prevention of another—stirred the forces that ultimately produced the most powerful civil rights organization in the world. 

History and true crime collide in a murder mystery that features characters as complex and colorful as those found in the best psychological thrillers—the unconventional truth-seeking detective Ray Schindler; the sinister pedophile Frank Heidemann; the ambitious Asbury Park Sheriff Clarence Hetrick; the mysterious “sting artist,” Carl Neumeister; and the victim, Marie Smith, who represented all the innocent, vulnerable children living in turn-of-the-century America.

Gripping and powerful, The Rope is an important piece of history that gives a voice to the voiceless and resurrects a long-forgotten true crime story that speaks to the very divisions tearing at the nation’s fabric today

Alex Tresniowski was a writer for both Time and People magazines, handling mostly human-interest stories. He is the author or coauthor of more than twenty books, including the 2005 true-crime thriller The Vendetta, which was used as a basis for the 2009 Johnny Depp movie Public Enemies

     Juneteenth: Commemorate; Learn with Smithsonian/NMAAHC  
    Contact: Programming     mcl@monmouthcountylib.org
   

Commemorate Juneteenth! Explore The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture  collaborative collection shared with Monmouth County Library - Available to view on the Library website

The Emancipation Proclamation was made effective in 1863, but not implemented in places under Confederate Control. Freedom finally came on June 19, 1865, when some 2,000 Union troops arrived in Galveston Bay, Texas. The army announced that the more than 250,000 enslaved black people in the state were free by executive decree. This day came to be known as "Juneteenth," by the newly freed people in Texas.

Juneteenth is a time to celebrate, gather as a family, reflect on the past and look to the future. The Monmouth County Library, together with the National Museum of African American History and Culture, invites you to engage in your history and discover ways to celebrate this holiday.

🔴The Historical Legacy of Juneteenth    

🔴Celebrate Juneteenth - Freedom Calling: Interactive Tour with Founding Director Lonnie Bunch III who leads a tour through the Museum’s Slavery and Freedom exhibition  

🔴Making African America: Historic Moments    

🔴Smithsonian Online Virtual Archives offers a tour through Emancipation Documents, for example, you will find a  Certificate of Freedom for Joseph Trammell

🔴Explore, learn and engage with the National Museum of African American History and Culture through numerous digital resources. Link here for more:  

🔴Find InfoBase’ African American History Resources on Monmouth County Library Research/DateBase tab. Topics may be filtered by subject or era, offering over 1,200 videos, 400+ Primary Source documents which include famous speeches, Segregation and Integration Documents, Slavery and Abolition Documents, Maps and Charts, including Migration & Settlement Maps, and more.

The Smithsonian Institution was established with funds from James Smithson (1765–1829), a British scientist who left his estate to the United States to found “at Washington, under the name of the Smithsonian Institution, an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge.”  Once established, the Smithsonian became part of the process of developing an American national identity—an identity rooted in exploration, innovation, and a unique American style. That process continues today as the Smithsonian looks toward the future.

The National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened on September 24, 2016, is a place where all Americans can learn about the richness and diversity of the African American experience, what it means to their lives, and how it helped us shape this nation.

Revisiting the Founding Fathers: Gouverneur Morris, the Forgotten Founding Father

Presented by Jennifer W. Reiss; Moderated by Donna Mansfield, Eastern Branch 

Gouverneur Morris is one of our Founding Fathers, a signer of the Articles of Confederation, and the US Constitution, author of the Preamble to the Constitution, envoy to France during the French Revolution, and a Senator from New York.  Morris was one of the most outspoken critics of slavery among the Founding Fathers and also argued for the right of people to practice their chosen religion without interference.  Morris was also disabled.  His left leg was amputated after a carriage accident and he was severely burned on his right side.

Our Speaker, Jennifer W. Reiss, is a PhD candidate in history at the University of Pennsylvania, with specific interests in early modern medicine and disability, and women and gender.  Her project, currently titled “Pity That So Fine a Man Should Have Lost His Leg:" Gouverneur Morris and the Nuances of Physical Disability in Early America, attempts to understand how Morris, the early American statesman and diplomat, negotiated his multiple physical impairments alongside class and gender expectations in the early Republic. Reiss has a BA from Penn, a Master’s in History from Cambridge University, and JD from Harvard University.  She practiced law for several years before she decided to return to Penn's graduate school to study  American History.

This program is part of Revisiting the Founding Era, a four-year national initiative of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History presented in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Constitution Center, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

  Recording of this program without written agreement with the presenter,  in any manner is strictly prohibited; this performance is protected by copyright law.

Virtual History  Book Discussion: Who Tells Your Story? Madame Fourcade’s Secret War by Lynne Olson

Moderated by  Jeanmarie Kantor, Library HQ 

In 1941 a thirty-one-year-old Frenchwoman, born to privilege and known for her beauty and glamour, became the leader of a vast intelligence organization—the only woman to serve as a chef de résistance during the war. No other French spy network lasted as long or supplied as much crucial intelligence. Now, in this dramatic account of the war that split France in two and forced its people to live side by side with their hated German occupiers, Lynne Olson tells the fascinating story of a woman who stood up for her nation, her fellow citizens, and herself.

Historically Speaking, A Virtual Lecture Series  John Barrows presents Three Curious Stories from the Monmouth History Timeline

Presented by the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA). Co-Sponsored by the Monmouth County Library 

Thomas Edison is one of the most famous figures in history. He spent about a year in Monmouth County, but it’s curious, hardly anyone seemed to know about it then...or now. What was he doing here? How could one of the world’s most famous celebrities spend a year here unnoticed? And why isn’t this a more well-known story?

 Before the Coast Guard, the U.S. Life-Saving Service provided assistance to foundering ships close to shore. Before that, those who came to the aid of distressed vessels were known as “wreckers.” These people were often reviled as the most rapacious and vile humans on Earth. Eventually, the people of Monmouth County would be accused of heinous crimes associated with plundering a shipwreck. An analysis of 150 years of newspaper coverage reveals a number of curious things about the Land Pirates of Monmouth County.

 On December 7, 1941, two Army privates using the newest radar developed at Fort Monmouth detected the incoming Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but their warning was not heeded. From that point forward, these two men would see their lives go in very different directions. One was rewarded, promoted, and honored; the other was not. They both spent time here in Monmouth County, but again there was a curious duality to this: One remained for only a brief time, while the other chose to stay and raise his family here.                     

John R. Barrows is the founder and editor of Monmouth Timeline (MonmouthTimeline.org), and producer of the “This Day in Monmouth County History” syndicated graphic features. There are currently more than 215 stories on the Monmouth Timeline, covering 400 years of regional history, with new ones added every month. Some of these stories are familiar, others are obscure, all are fascinating in their own way.  

 Before creating the Timeline, John Barrows was a corporate communications and public relations executive, where he spent ten years as global head of corporate communications for a Fortune 500 company. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Newspaper Journalism from Syracuse University, and a master's in Communication from Rutgers. A native of Massachusetts, he has lived in Little Silver for nearly 30 years.

 

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend.

A Novel Idea Book Discussion Series:  The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett 

 Moderated by Katie Kenny, HQ 

The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age 16, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' storylines intersect? The Vanishing Half considers the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person's decisions, desires, and expectations, and explores some of the multiple reasons and realms in which people sometimes feel pulled to live as something other than their origins.

Presented by Amelie Baveja, Grade 11, Holmdel High School 

Writing may seem difficult, especially when one is just starting out. This short writing course will assist students in generating ideas and analyzing their peers' works, to hone their reading and writing skills. We will be writing stories based on prompts, providing the opportunity to develop the student's own writing style while helping them create new pieces. In the end, we will share and review the pieces and discuss where students can use their new skills, for submissions and publications.

Amelie Baveja, a rising junior and straight honor student in the gifted and talented program for English in the Holmdel School system, was chosen by The New York Times to participate in their Summer Writing Academy last year, where she had the opportunity to interact and write with esteemed published authors.

     A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen - Submit an article for Volunteer Hours!  
    Contact: Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.  

Age: Must be between grades 7-12

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval. 

Limit of two submissions per person. 

Submission: Please submit your article through this Google Form

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
