  • Sammy Davis Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me

    Sammy Davis Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me

    Monday, November 22 - Sunday, November 28
    Directed by Sam Pollard
    Film Series

    Sammy Davis, Jr. had the kind of career that was indisputably legendary, so vast and multi-faceted that it was dizzying in its scope and scale. And yet, his life was complex, complicated and contradictory. Davis strove to achieve the American Dream in a time of racial prejudice and shifting political territory. He was the veteran of increasingly outdated show business traditions trying to stay relevant; he frequently found himself bracketed by the bigotry of white America and the distaste of black America; he was the most public black figure to embrace Judaism, thereby yoking his identity to another persecuted minority.

    Featuring new interviews with such luminaries as Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg and Kim Novak, with never-before-seen photographs from Davis’ vast personal collection and excerpts from his electric performances in television, film and concert, Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me explores the life and art of a uniquely gifted entertainer whose trajectory blazed across the major flashpoints of American society from the Depression through the 1980s.

    In 1958, amongst the chil­dren born with spina bifi­da is Riva Lehrer. Her par­ents and doc­tors are deter­mined to ​“fix” her, send­ing the mes­sage over and over again that she is bro­ken, that she will nev­er have a job, a roman­tic rela­tion­ship, or an inde­pen­dent life. Endur­ing count­less med­ical inter­ven­tions, Riva tries her best to be a good girl and a good patient in the quest to be cured. Every­thing changes when, as an adult, Riva is invit­ed to join a group of artists, writ­ers, and per­form­ers who are build­ing Dis­abil­i­ty Cul­ture. They insist that dis­abil­i­ty is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for cre­ativ­i­ty and resis­tance. Embold­ened, Riva asks if she can paint their por­traits‚ invent­ing an inti­mate and col­lab­o­ra­tive process that will trans­form the way she sees her­self, oth­ers, and the world. Each por­trait sto­ry begins to trans­form the myths she’s been told her whole life about her body, her sex­u­al­i­ty, and oth­er mea­sures of nor­mal. Writ­ten with the vivid, cin­e­mat­ic prose of a visu­al artist and the author’s mag­nif­i­cent por­traits fea­tured through­out, Golem Girl is an extra­or­di­nary sto­ry of tenac­i­ty and creativity.

  • The Genius of Women

    The Genius of Women

    Thursday, February 24 | 7 PM
    Written by Janice Kaplan
    Author Series
    We tell girls that they can be any­thing, so why do 90 per­cent of Amer­i­cans believe that genius­es are almost always men? New York Times best­selling jour­nal­ist and cre­ator and host of the pod­cast The Grat­i­tude Diaries Jan­ice Kaplan explores the pow­er­ful forces that have rigged the sys­tem‚ and cel­e­brates the women genius­es, past and present, who have tri­umphed anyway.

    Even in this time of rethink­ing wom­en’s roles, we define genius almost exclu­sive­ly through male achieve­ment. When asked to name a genius, peo­ple men­tion Albert Ein­stein, Leonar­do da Vin­ci, and Steve Jobs. As for great women? In one sur­vey, the only female genius any­one list­ed was Marie Curie.

    Jan­ice Kaplan, the New York Times best­selling author of The Grat­i­tude Diaries, set out to deter­mine why the extra­or­di­nary work of so many women has been brushed aside. Using her unique mix of mem­oir, nar­ra­tive, and inspi­ra­tion, she makes sur­pris­ing dis­cov­er­ies about women genius­es now and through­out his­to­ry, in fields from music to robot­ics. Through inter­views with neu­ro­sci­en­tists, psy­chol­o­gists, and dozens of women genius­es at work in the world today‚ includ­ing Nobel Prize win­ner Frances Arnold and AI expert Fei-Fei Li she proves that genius isn’t just about tal­ent. It’s about hav­ing that tal­ent rec­og­nized, nur­tured, and celebrated.

    Across the gen­er­a­tions, even when they face less-than-per­fect cir­cum­stances, women genius­es have cre­at­ed bril­liant and orig­i­nal work. In The Genius of Women, you’ll learn how they ignored obsta­cles and broke down seem­ing­ly unshak­able bar­ri­ers. The genius­es in this mov­ing, pow­er­ful, and very enter­tain­ing book pro­vide more than inspi­ra­tion‚ they offer a clear blue­print to every­one who wants to find her own path and move for­ward with passion.

We all like­ly con­jure up a sim­i­lar image of the women’s suf­frage move­ment: pick­et signs, red car­na­tions, mil­i­tant march­es through the streets. But was it only these ral­lies that gained women the expo­sure and pow­er that led them to the vote? Ever-coura­geous and cre­ative suf­frag­ists also car­ried their rad­i­cal mes­sage into America’s homes wrapped in food wis­dom through cook­books, which ingen­u­ous­ly pack­aged polit­i­cal strat­e­gy into already exis­tent social com­mu­ni­ties. These cook­books gave suf­frag­ists a chance to reach out to women on their own terms in non­threat­en­ing and acces­si­ble ways. Cook­ing togeth­er, feed­ing peo­ple, and using social sit­u­a­tions to put peo­ple at ease were pio­neer­ing grass­roots tac­tics that lever­aged the domes­tic knowl­edge these women already had, feed­ing spoon­fuls of suf­frage to com­mu­ni­ties through unex­pect­ed and unas­sum­ing chan­nels. Filled with charm and wit and actu­al his­toric recipes (“mix the crust with tact and vel­vet gloves using no sar­casm espe­cial­ly with the upper crust”) that evoke the spir­it­ed fla­vor of fem­i­nism and food move­ments, All Stirred Up reac­ti­vates the taste of an era and car­ries us back through time to when women enfran­chised them­selves through the sub­ver­sive and savvy pow­er of the palate.
