Film & Discussion: Could Fascism really happen here? 6pm Sun 2-25-18

 
How serious a threat does the Trump/Pence regime pose to humanity?
What is the character of the regime—is it fascist, and if it is, what are the implications?
What are the roots of this regime? Is it a terrible aberration, “more of the same”... or something different still?
What must be done to stop it? How?
Is a better world possible?
In this film, The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! Bob Avakian addresses those questions from the loftiest possible level with a penetrating scientific approach, and with a depth of compassion and breadth of humanity that is unique.
If many now agonizing over these questions could be exposed to this talk,  it would make a huge difference in how people understand what they face in this regime, and in the kinds of possibilities that they could become alive to. It could begin to change the whole equation.

Screening: I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO - 7pm Friday 2-16-18

Toward the end of his life, James Baldwin, novelist, essayist and poet, wrote notes for a book he had wanted to write about his three assassinated friends, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King. Peck's film uses these notes to jump through time, in a blazing examination of the history of race in America.

 "I Am Not Your Negro, an Oscar-nominated documentary by Raoul Peck, is a must see. If you think you know the reality of the brutal depth and horror of white supremacy in America, if you think you've seen it all and even if you have, you've not seen it delivered like this."

Daina Berry discusses The Price for Their Pound of Flesh: 7pm Mon 2-12-18

In life and in death, slaves were commodities, their monetary value assigned based on their age, gender, health, and the demands of the market. The Price for Their Pound of Flesh is the first book to explore the economic value of enslaved people through every phase of their lives—including preconception, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, the senior years, and death—in the early American domestic slave trade.

This book is the culmination of more than ten years of research, drawing on data from sources such as slave-trading records, insurance policies, cemetery records, and life insurance policies. Writing with sensitivity and depth, Dr. Berry resurrects the voices of the enslaved and provides a rare window into enslaved peoples’ experiences and thoughts, revealing how enslaved people recalled and responded to being appraised, bartered, and sold throughout the course of their lives.
