The War of 1812: Out of History’s Shadows
 

 

The War of 1812 is the most misunderstood war in American history. But it turns out to have been nothing short of momentous, explains University of Maryland historian Richard Bell. Fought on three fronts, including on the streets of Washington, DC, the War of 1812 unfolded on a grand continental canvas. Like the American Revolution that preceded it, it combined bloody battlefield skirmishes with dramatic home-front conflicts that pitted neighbors and communities against one another. Like the Civil War that followed a half-century later, it was also a struggle involving slavery and slaveholding in which enslaved people themselves would claim decisive roles. More than simply the inspiration for the poem that later became our national anthem, the War of 1812 was a watershed moment in the history of a young republic that should best be understood as both the last battle of the Revolution and the first battle of the Civil War.

Musicals in the New Millennium - Part I
 

 

Musical theatre has changed. To many it has become a tourist attraction not the art form it once was. To be in a musical you needed to be a triple threat ---a singer who could act and dance. Costs to produce new material were astronomical. As a result the new musicals took on a different feel and changed the way the theatre going attendee saw them. “The Producers”, “Hairspray’, “Billy Elliot” forge the way  for movies, revivals and new creative work such as “Dear Evan Hansen” , “Come From Away” and “Hamilton” See how theater in the recent twenty years has evolved.

Pursuing the Horizon: Stories of Justice
 

 

D.C. Superior Court Judge Russell F. Canan will present some of the most horrifying, perplexing, and important issues in life and the law, offering suspenseful and riveting stories, a rare lens into the daily life and minds of those seeing to achieve justice and those who must live, or sometimes ide with the consequences. The lecture explores justice in all its forms from freedom for beaten migrant farmworkers in the shadow of the Ku Klux Klan, to life itself in a last-minute death row plea for mercy to Governor George Wallace of Alabama, only to witness the client killed in a botched execution in the electric chair that shocked the world. In another case, a jury’s capacity for forgiveness and redemption is tested as the defense team fights to spare a broken young man from the gas chamber. Justice from the other side of the bench looks at the challenge for a judge wrestling with the age-old quandary of whether the ends justify the means in a criminal case when strictly following the law would result in a miscarriage of justice. The judge also anguishes with the solemn decision as to whether to terminate life support in one case and experiences the pressure of presiding over a high-profile murder case.

The Honorable Russell F. Canan, Judge, D.C. Superior Court

On this tour of Fort Tyron Park and the Cloisters, we’ll visit Revolutionary War sites, discuss the development of the surrounding area and then visit Fort Tryon Park. The area now comprising the park once consisted of five “country” estates. One estate was owned by a prominent figure of the Gilded Age, C. K .G. Billings, who attained notoriety for his excesses. We’ll contrast the self-indulgent Billings with John D. Rockefeller Jr., the man who purchased the land and paid to develop it and the Cloisters Museum into a jewel for the public. We’ll see the remnants of the Billings estate, enjoy magnificent views of the Hudson, stroll through the Heather Garden and end at the Cloisters museum.

Israel’s Coat of Many Colors
 

 

From its earliest years as a state, absorbing Jewish survivors and refugees from post-War Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and beyond, to the present moment when Jews from around the world continue to make their homes in Israel, the nation has formed a patchwork of languages, customs, races, and religious traditions.  But maintaining one of the most ethnically diverse populations in one of the world’s smallest countries isn’t always a simple feat.  This lecture addresses two related themes: the history of immigration to Israel, and the ethnic, religious, and racial implications of maintaining a multicultural society in an environment with many other challenges.  On the best of days, it’s a combination of jachnun (Yemenite pastry) and kugel (European sweet noodle casserole) for Shabbat morning meals.  On other days, it’s a whole world of tastes, trapped in a pressure cooker.  Breakfast, anyone?

The Lost Treasures of China
 

 

The cultural treasures of China can today be found in countless museums around the world. But how did they get there? This lecture will provide an overview of the historical exodus of cultural treasures from China in the 19th and 20th centuries. We will learn about what sort of artifacts the Chinese collected, when the Westerners began to take an interest in these artifacts, and perhaps most importantly, when, where, and how so many of these cultural treasures left the country. You will leave with a better understanding of the legacy this exodus has left for today and the controversies their removal has produced.

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. Having a strong body helps you avoid injuries, falls, pain and other issues associated with getting older. The exercises taught in this class will focus on building total body strength with an emphasis on improving balance stability, and flexibility. We will use weights and a chair. If you don't own weights you can use a water bottle, a can or anything else you have at home. All exercises can be done standing or sitting. Each class consists of an aerobic warm up, strength work, balance and flexibility. We will end with a relaxing stretch and cool down. No matter how old you are, exercise can improve the quality of your life.

Founding Mothers: Visionary Leadership in Pre-State Israel & Beyond
 

 

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we turn to a pair of non-traditional maternal figures. Among the most creative and influential leaders in the early 20th century Jewish world were two extraordinary women, Henrietta Szold and Manya Shohat.  Szold, a world-class scholar, founder of one of the largest Jewish organizations in the world (Hadassah), pioneer of nursing and medical centers in pre-State Israel, and protector of Jewish children around the world, left her mark on a host of institutions.  Shohat, a firebrand immigrant, passionate Socialist, and founder of the kibbutz movement, fought battles with both bullets and words.  Their vision would transform their people, their country, and their world.

The Artistic Genius of Leonardo da Vinci: Part II - At the Sforza Court in Milan
 

 

Seeking to soften the militant and belligerent reputation of the Lombard capital city, Duke Ludovico “the Moor” Sforza sought the services of an extraordinary artist and inventor from Florence by the name of Leonardo da Vinci. The artist’s arrival in Milan in 1481 marked a turning point in Milan’s history, introducing the Renaissance to the great northern city. The 18 years that Leonardo spent in Milan were some of his most productive, and this lecture will examine those works produced while Leonardo was in Milan including the Virgin of the Rocks, the Virtuvian Man, the Lady with an Ermine, and, of course, the Last Supper.
