Teen Documentary Watch Party: Show Me Democracy
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

For Grades 9-12: Join us on the YA department's Discord for a watch party for the documentary Show Me Democracy: Student Activism Amidst the Uprising in Ferguson (synopsis below), available for free streaming on Kanopy with your library card at https://chboothlibrary.kanopy.com/video/show-me-democracy. We'll each stream the film on our own devices and discuss live on Discord. Please register by noon 10/26  to get the Discord invite.

---------

Amidst the uprising in Ferguson, MO, seven St. Louis college students evolve into activists as they demand change through policy and protest. This film examines their personal lives and backgrounds as each of them copes with the fallout of Ferguson.

Six of the students fight for education policy reform through their internship program and try to create more opportunities for low-income and DACA students in their state. One of the seven joins the Black Lives Matter movement and organizes several protests to demonstrate against ongoing racial injustice. Following her on the ground, the camera captures several of her tension-filled protests including a night in Ferguson when the police tear gas protesters.

SHOW ME DEMOCRACY asks us to examine how a committed group of college students can make a difference in a complex and imperfect system and what methods have the most impact.

To stream, first, make sure you have a library card. Then, use your library card to set up an account on Kanopy.

The History of Christmas Carols
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

John Cilio presents "Secrets Your Parents Never Told You About the History of Christmas Carols."

Carols used to be sung all during the year, but only the tradition of singing them at CHristmas has survived. Early Christians took over the pagan solstice galas for Christmas and sunstituted their Christian songs. As early as the year 129, Roman Bishops called out carols to be sung at Christmas services in Rome. Over the centuries the words and meanings of the songs have changed. Some verses were never intended to be Christmas songs. There is more to these stories. Discover some of the fascinating legends and realities that surround the traditional songs of the season.
