America - Past and Present

Remembering the '50's

$25

with Lorraine Dutile-Masure

Calendar Apr 1, 2021 at 10 am, runs for 8 weeks

Thursday

One part history, one part personal recollections, one part music of the decade.  A return to another time - the golden age of capitalism versus the encroaching concern of communism.  At home, happy days of color television, I Like Ike and I Love Lucy, The King and I (Elvis?).  And, of course, that ever-pesky, sinful rock and roll parental barter:  "Take out the papers and the trash.  Or you don't get no spending cash."  Yakety yak, don't talk back."

Two Sides to Every Issue

$25

with Mike Berkowitz

Calendar Apr 2, 2021 at 1 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Friday

Abortion, Citizens United, welfare, health care, free speech, freedom of religion, vouchers, Affirmative Action, gun control, taxes, censorship, the news, inequality, prisons and justice.  The Left argues one way, the Right, another.  Who's right, who's wrong?  Or is there a better solution?  We tend to view things only from our perspective.  Can we better understand the other perspectives?  We'll consider the two sides of each issue, and then we'll try to decide what's best.  Mini-lectures and movie clips will give frameworks for discussion.  Come consider the contradictions in contemporary conundrums.
