River Readings at Augustana
Thursday, January 29, 2009, 7:00 p.m., Wallenberg Hall
Nationally acclaimed poet Li-Young Lee has been described this way by Gerald Stern: "What characterizes Lee's poetry is a certain humility...a willingness to let the sublime enter his field of concentration and take over, a devotion to language, a belief in its holiness." The son of Chinese parents who fled persecution in Indonesia when he was a boy, Lee writes about loss, exile, family, and love. His most recent book is Behind My Eyes (Norton 2008). Samples of Lee's poetry can be found on Moodle under Library/The River Readings. For more information about lee see http://www.blueflowerarts.com/.
In Honor of Black History Month - Ain't I a Woman!
Wednesday, February 4, 2009
Wallenberg Hall, Denkmann Building
Sponsored by the Augustana Institute for Leadership and Service
The Core Ensemble, Tahirah Whittington, cello, Hugh Hinton, piano, and Michael Parola, percussion, with actress Taylore Mahogany Scott, will perform the music theatre work Ain't I a Woman! The work is the latest in a series of multicultural and feminist performance pieces produced by the ensemble over the past ten years. Ain't I a Woman! celebrates the life and times of four powerful African Amerian women: renowned novelist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston, ex-slave and fiery abolitionist Sojourner Truth, exuberant folk artist Clementine Hunter, and fervent civil rights worker Fannie Lou Hamer. The musical score is drawn from the heartfelt spirituals and blues of the Deep South, the urban vitality of the Jazz Age, and contemporary concert music by African Americans. Ain't I a Woman! is a joyful exploration of the trials and triumphs of four passionate and accomplished women. The event is free and open to the public. Please encourage your students to attend.
