The Spanish Civil War – Part I: Dress Rehearsal
 

The Spanish Civil War began with a coup that attempted to bring down La Niña Bonita, as The Republic was called. In reality, the war had deeper roots going back to the Spanish American War of 1898, the anarchist violence of the 1910s, the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera, and the many failed attempts at liberalization and ending the monarchy. This lecture will examine the prelude to the Spanish Civil War and how these conflicts set the stage both for the rise of the Republic and the war to come.

Unusual for Their Time: The First Ladies - 1900-2019
 

Women have been partners in the development and leadership of our country from the very beginning. American First Ladies are some of the most powerful unpaid and unelected women in the world. They have been paying it forward since before “pay it forward” was a catch phrase. They didn’t do it because they had to or were expected to. They did it because it was the right thing to do. Much of their efforts and many of their accomplishments have gone unrecognized. This class will show that women are an integral part of the success of our country and the modern world, the sooner we can all move forward together as one and create a better future for all of us. The class will start with Edith Roosevelt and carries readers right on through to Melania Trump. There is always so much to talk about with these First Ladies, and the stories of my travels are virtually endless.

Strength training has incredible benefits for everyone, and especially for seniors. This total body workout is a great way for older adults to get started with strength training.

We will use dumbbells, exercise balls, resistance bands, tubing, exercise rings, and chairs for balance and support. All exercises can be done seated or standing. Each class consists of a warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility work and will end with relaxing stretch and cool down.

The Spanish Civil War – Part II: Carnage of War and Dictatorship
 

Of all the major international crises of the 1930s none aroused half the passion of the Spanish Civil War.  The length and extent of the conflict provoked a good part of this passion. But perhaps more importantly: it was the one crisis in this period in which some Americans were directly engaged and it centered on an embryonic democracy nipped in the bud after a brief and tumultuous birth. Its outcome was seen as determinant for the fate of self-government everywhere. In effect, the Spanish Civil War was a preview of the larger war to come: WWII. This lecture will examine the rise of the Republic, the outbreak of the Civil War and its evolution in both the Spanish and European context. Special attention will also be given to the international volunteers that fought in the war, including the Abraham Lincoln Brigade from the United States.

TV and the Broadway Musical - Part I
 

In the 1950’s, it was television that was built with the help from  the Broadway Musical.  It was a mutually beneficial relationship as television relied in the actors and the shows relied on the publicity that television could provide. “Ed Sullivan” “What’s My Line” and even “I Love Lucy” all used the TV mechanism to promote the Broadway musical. Come and enjoy seeing how these two distinct and different mediums built  lasting relationship.

Post Impressionists - Paul Cezanne
 

Paul Cezanne is a central figure in the history of modern art, a Post-Impressionist, who is also celebrated as the forefather to Cubism. Cezanne’s images transitioned 19th-century art to the radical modernism of the 20th-century. The lecture explores Cezanne’s groundbreaking rejection of the Impressionist spontaneity and his focus on geometry and structure to make "something solid and durable, like the art of museums."

Better Halves: Women Artists in Renaissance and Baroque Europe
 

Many female artists emerged in Europe between 1500 and 1700 as daughters, wives and sisters of male artists. This lecture will highlight a number of these women who ended up more famous and more accomplished or at least the equals of their fathers, brothers, and husbands, including Sophonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, Elisabetta Sirani, Artemisia Gentileschi, and Judith Leyster. Every one of these brave and talented women has a unique story and more and more of their art works have come to light and been recognized as worthy of being included in our major museums.

The Rise of the New Con Artists
 

Con artists have a large role in society, past and present. “Give them the old Razzle Dazzle,” sing the sly two-timers in the musical ‘Chicago’. “From the Age of Methuselah, everyone loves the Big Bamboozler.” Why is that? In the annals of finance and love, in politics and sports, Bamboozlers  have cut a wide swath. This lecture looks at the lure and lore -- and warning signs for spotting the con artists next door -- or even closer.

“American Carnage: The Wars of Donald Trump”: Part II
 

This class presents a speculative look at what is needed to review, reinvigorate, and reinvent the federal government in the wake of the damage caused by the Trump presidency.  Special attention will be given to the need for an independent and nonpartisan entity to oversee a genuine reform process in such agencies as the Department of State, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  Congress itself must be restructured due to the weakening of the Government Accountability Office, the Congressional Research Service, and the Congressional Budget Office.  The corruption in government finds too many former lawmakers and government officials remaining in Washington to lobby for corporate clients who helped to craft a flawed tax bill in 2017 and regularly increased defense spending at the expense of non-defense priorities.

TV and the Broadway Musical - Part II
 

In the 1950’s, it was television that was built with the help from  the Broadway Musical.  It was a mutually beneficial relationship as television relied in the actors and the shows relied on the publicity that television could provide. “Ed Sullivan” “What’s My Line” and even “I Love Lucy” all used the TV mechanism to promote the Broadway musical. Come and enjoy seeing how these two distinct and different mediums built  lasting relationship.

The Declaration of Independence - Why, Howand So What?
 

We don’t often think of the Declaration of Independence in global perspective—but maybe we should.  Its task was to announce to the world that thirteen previously separate colonies had formed a new political union that was now desperately in need of a powerful foreign ally. This was not the first declaration of independence ever issued, and its ideas and forms betray many influences, both American and European. But its resonance was unparalleled. More than 100 other declarations of independence have been issued in other parts of the world since 1776, a stark reminder that our American Revolution—a modest change in political sovereignty in a few out-of-the-way agricultural colonies on the western rim of the Atlantic Ocean—occupies pride of place in the larger history of global decolonization and post-colonialism. University of Maryland historian Dr. Richard Bell reconstructs the fascinating history of the Declaration of Independence—its origins, its purpose, its impact, and its extraordinary global legacy.

What Type of Safari is Right For You?
 

Rick will compare and contrast the variable attributes of three types of safaris in which he has participated.  The three safaris include a package tour from a major tour provider, a private safari arranged by Rick and a 10-day mobile tented camping experience in the “bush.”  Attributes discussed include required flights, transportation on the safari, lodging, meals, activities, physical (agility) requirements and costs.  All aspects will be compared via discussion, pictures and in some cases videos from the actual safaris in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana.  If you’ve been thinking about going on safari or are just interested in the idea, this presentation is for you.

For some 7 years, French Impressionist icon Claude Monet lived and worked at Argenteuil, a suburb of Paris.  This presentation will take you on a journey into this Impressionist paradise that Monet immortalized.  Whether the riverside views, sparkling with color and light; or the floral beauty of his private garden; or the endless fields of the nearby countryside.  At its heart was his wife and muse Camille who is the star of countless canvases, culminating in his tribute to her, Woman with a Parasol one of the treasures of the National Gallery of Art collection.
