The American Tragedy of COVID-19: Social and Political Crises of 2020


The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States is a classic tragedy of destruction following errors in judgment.  Naomi Zack presents social and political aspects of this disaster as it unfolded in public health through federal and local government structures, society, culture, and the economy.

Federalism combined with politics in facing and denying the SARS-CoV2 pandemic has revealed both weaknesses and strengths.

Anthony Ray Hinton - Special Zoom Event

Join us as we welcome:

ANTHONY RAY HINTON

to Lehman College, for a special Zoom event.


Anthony Ray Hinton survived for 30 years on Alabama’s death row. His story is a decades-long journey to exoneration and freedom.

In 1985, Mr. Hinton was convicted of the unsolved murders of two fast-food restaurant managers based on the testimony of ballistics experts for the State who claimed that the crime bullets came from a dusty revolver found in Mr. Hinton’s mother’s closet. Without the benefit of a competent expert to challenge the State’s theory (Mr. Hinton’s lawyer hired a ballistics expert who was blind in one eye), an all-white jury convicted Mr. Hinton and he was sentenced to death.

After years of petitioning to have the revolver re-analyzed, three independent experts concluded that the bullets could not have been fired from his mother’s revolver. With the assistance of the Equal Justice Initiative, led by attorney Bryan Stevenson, Mr. Hinton was freed in 2015.

Since his release, Mr. Hinton has traveled the world sharing his story and discussing the changes that need to be made to prevent similar injustices from happening to other people. In 2018, Mr. Hinton published
The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row, which was selected for Oprah’s Book Club and is a New York Times bestseller. In 2019, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from St. Bonaventure University.

Faculty and Staff are invited to bring students!

Reading with Mila Burns: Dona Ivone Lara's Sorriso Negro
More than simply a paragon of Brazilian samba, Dona (Lady) Ivone Lara’s 1981 Sorriso Negro (translated to Black Smile) is an album deeply embedded in the political and social tensions of its time. Released less than two years after the Brazilian military dictatorship approved the Lei de Anistia (the “Opening” that put Brazil on a path toward democratic governance), Sorriso Negro reflects the seminal shifts occurring within Brazilian society as former exiles reinforced debates of civil rights and feminist thought in a nation under the iron hand of a military dictatorship that had been in place since 1964. By looking at one of the most important samba albums ever recorded (and one that also happened to be authored by a black woman), Mila Burns explores the pathbreaking career of Dona Ivone Lara, tracing the ways in which she navigated the tense gender and race relations of the samba universe to ultimately conquer the masculine world of samba composers.

Mila Burns is Assistant Professor of Latin American and Latino Studies at Lehman College.
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Graphic Novel Reading Club: The Harlem Hellfighters

For the month of February, we’ll be reading The Harlem Hellfighters by Max Brooks and Caanan White. It tells the heroic story of the 369th infantry regiment, an African American unit that spent more time in combat than any other American unit, but never lost a foot of ground to the enemy or a man to capture. Though they won countless decorations and returned as heroes, they faced tremendous discrimination, even from their own government. The Harlem Hellfighters, as the Germans called them, fought courageously on—and off—the battlefield to make Europe and America safe for democracy.

The Nine Lives of Frederick Douglass

I. Augustus Durham, assistant professor, Department of English School of Arts and Humanities, Lehman College

Tuesday Feb. 16, 2-3 p.m.

In the wake of his 200th birthday, Frederick Douglass has sustained cultural relevance in manners that exceed his life as a writer and abolitionist. In "The Nine Lives of Frederick Douglass," Durham examines Douglass as a living multiplicity, and how our imaginations continue to grasp at all that he was, is, and presumably will be.

Soviet Women in Brezhnev's Courts: Gender and Justice in the Late Soviet Union

Professor Rhiannon Dowling, of the History Department at Lehman, will give a talk entitled:

 "Soviet Women in Brezhnev's Courts: Gender and Justice in the Late Soviet Union".


This presentation will focus on a criminal trial from a town outside of Moscow from 1966-1969. Almost all the key players in the trial were women and all of them used the language of gender to discredit the other side and advance their own idea of justice. It gives us a window into the Soviet justice system at a moment when trust in the law and loyalty to the state was clearly breaking down, but when those who believed in legality still had hope for reform. A discussion based almost entirely on gender brought together people divided by class, education, and ideology and ultimately gave justice a chance to prevail.

Introduction to Open Access

The pandemic has underscored the importance of barrier-free public accessibility of scholarly and pedagogical works.  You need easier access to others’ works - and they need easier access to yours. Funders are increasingly mandating Open Access to the research they fund.

This online Webinar will cover the basics of Open Access publishing:  what it is and how it started.  You’ll leave with practical tips for locating freely available research produced by others - as well as finding quality Open Access venues to share your own work. 

After registration you will receive a separate email from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs with the Zoom information.

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Philosopher Lewis R. Gordon: Why the Empowerment of Black Lives Is a Struggle for Democracy—A Talk on Freedom, Justice, and Decolonization


Presented by the Department of Africana Studies

How can a country be democratic when some people’s votes count more than others’? What should be done when one of the consequences of a long history of double standards and systemic disenfranchisement is that some people’s lives also count more than the rest of us? Drawing upon ideas from Africana thought, especially regarding freedom, justice, and decolonization, this talk will address this set of questions in light of recent events, including the attempted coup in the storming of the U.S. Capitol in January 2021. Presented by Lewis R. Gordon, professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Connecticut.
 

Topic: A Talk on Freedom, Justice , and Decolonization -- Professor Lewis Gordon

Black Poetry & Performance: Poems as Songs that ‘Send’ Us: Considering Selections from ‘Black Language & Music’ in Kevin Young’s African American Poetry: 250 Years of Struggle & Song

Poet Gwendolyn Brooks, in her 1967 occasional poem “The Chicago Picasso,” observed that: “Art hurts. Art urges voyages-/ and it is easier to stay at home, / the nice beer ready.” This notion invites the consideration of a lyric: Darling, you send me. Written in 1955 by the late singer Sam Cooke and released in 1957, “You Send Me” is timeless in theme and durability. How might a poem ‘send’ us? Leafing through Kevin Young’s repertoire of poets and poems, we’ll situate ‘sending’ as an effect responsive to desire and surrender. Featuring poets Rodney Terich Leonard, Lise Esdaile, Trapeta B. Mayson, and Monnette Sudler.


The event is one of a series of eclectic programs organized by One Book One Bronx, in collaboration with the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College, as part of the Lift Every Voice: Why African American Poetry Matters initiative. Lift Every Voice seeks to engage participants in a multifaceted exploration of African American poetry. It is sponsored by the Library of America and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Reading with Amanda Gulla: Inquiry-Based Learning Through the Creative Arts for Teachers and Teacher Educators

This book is a theoretical and practical guide to implementing an inquiry-based approach to teaching which centers creative responses to works of art in curriculum. Guided by Maxine Greene’s philosophy of Aesthetic Education, the authors discuss the social justice implications of marginalized students having access to the arts and opportunities to find their voices through creative expression. They aim to demystify the process of inquiry-based learning through the arts for teachers and teacher educators by offering examples of lessons taught in high school classrooms and graduate level teaching methods courses. Examples of student writing and art work show how creative interactions with the arts can help learners of all ages deepen their skills as readers, writers, and thinkers.

Amanda Gulla is Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Graduate Program in English Education at Lehman College.

Read the ebook through the Leonard Lief Library.

Erie County Smile (Screening and Discussion)
Multimedia artist Van Tran Nguyen will present and discuss her new satirical short film, "Erie County Smile," followed by a short Q & A.

Please RSVP to Professor Monica Duncan at monica.duncan@lehman.cuny.edu to obtain Zoom link.


Erie County Smile (2021) Erie County Smile is a parody of "Paris By Night" (PBN), a popular Vietnamese-language variety show. PBN gained notoriety in the Vietnamese diasporic community by the mid-1990s and is still in production today. Music from the live shows were recorded and commonly played at Vietnamese-owned businesses all over the world. In the waiting area of my family's nail salon, we always had PBN in the VHS player. This film lives at the intersection of nostalgia, diaspora and labor. Erie County Smile is dedicated to children of immigrants, who grew up behind doors labeled "EMPLOYEES ONLY". Erie County Smile is a satirical short film by Van Tran Nguyen, in collaboration with Alex Derwick, Ako Shergazy, Bryan Czerniawski and Mengtai Zhang.

Yours for Justice: The Continued Relevance Of Ida B. Wells' Diagnosis Of Domestic Racial Terror


Yours for Justice: The Continued Relevance of Ida B. Wells' Diagnosis of Domestic Racial Terror  

Professor Jane Anna Gordon of the University of Connecticut Department Of Political Science 

Everyone who has heard of Ida B. Wells is familiar with her as an anti-lynching crusader. What was crucial about her work was that it framed the rise of lynching in the early 20th century as entirely a function of hostility to the end of slavery and the growth of the project of black freedom. Professor Jane Anna Gordon will speak about Wells’ work and how her framing of anti-black violence as domestic terror forces us to consider why such actions are, to this day, not considered and treated as treasonous.

Ubuntu Pedagogy in Pandemic Times: Teaching Africana Women's Responses

There has been abundant reporting on the coronavirus pandemic’s disproportionate impact on Black and Brown people and communities with preexisting conditions of economic, educational, housing and health precarities. In the face of the virus’s existential threat, Black women and women of color in Africa and the African Diaspora have mobilized, organized, networked, and taken collective action to fight the pandemic, locally and transnationally. Led by Lehman College professors and students, this multimedia, interactive presentation explores those women’s visions, strategies, and best practices through the prism of the African indigenous worldview of Ubuntu (oo-boon-too), the very essence of being human and inextricably connected to others.

Dr. Elgloria Harrison

Dean, School of Health Sciences, Human Services and Nursing, CUNY Institute of Health Equity, Lehman College

 

Dr. Harrison will discuss her community-based research on preventing the devastating effects of asthma on the child and the family in urban setting through preventative education about symptoms. Her work also considers climate changes and other environmental issues as well as connections between chronic diseases and physical inactivity (more prevalent in minority communities of color and older adults). As a community-based researcher, this line of research is important to purse real answers to these stubborn problems. This work was published in Journal of Primary Care and Community Health.

Ghosts in Grey and Blue: a meditation of the legacy of the American Civil War

WORLD PREMIERE


The Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance is proud to present the first live recording of "Ghosts in Grey and Blue," a new brass trio by prominent African American composer, Dr. Adolphus Hailstork. This major new addition to the canon is meant by the composer to be paired with his choral setting of Walt Whitman's "When Lilacs Last in Dooryard Bloomed." In the absence of a chorus for this premiere, the poem is presented alongside Civil War imagery, to inform the music. The improvisatory nature of certain sections of this work means that it will never be performed the same way again. The video as a whole serves as a solemn reminder of the yet unresolved legacy of the Civil War.

A Mexican State of Mind: Migrant Creatives in NYC


Join Dr. Melissa Castillo Planas, author of A Mexican State of Mind: New York City and the New Borderlands of Culture, alongside Mexican MCs Juan Carlos Romero and Audry Funk for a virtual discussion on Mexican creativity in New York City.

The spoken word poets will perform their work, followed by a Q&A. Moderated by Saralinda Lichtblau, HRM Assistant Director, Education.

Today’s Mexican Art Scene: Virtual Studio Visit with Javier Marin


Join us for the third in our series with contemporary Mexican artists who are making their mark on the international scene. Javier Marin (b. 1962) is one of the most influential and controversial artists working in Mexico today, with a wide body of work developed throughout 35 years, consistently recognized by international art institutions. During this rare virtual visit to his studio in Mexico City, he will talk about his working process, his sculptures and monumental works for public spaces, with emphasis on his newest project, the Fábrica de San Pedro Cultural Center in Uruapan, in the State of Michoacan.

This groundbreaking project is a collaboration between architects, restorers, curators, historians, designers, and artists, organized by the Javier Marin Foundation. This nineteenth-century textile factory brings together skilled artisans and contemporary artists to preserve and strengthen their unique cultural identity and community. To talk about the project, the artist has invited two of the main collaborators in this adventure: Estefania Angeles, Director at the Javier Marin Foundation and Eduardo Mier y Terán, Director at Terreno Baldío Art Gallery.
