Island City Stage, creating quality professional theatrical experiences focused on the LGBT+ community for a universal audience, will host their very own Behind the Red Curtain community forum entitled “Law Enforcement and the LGBT+ Community – Where are we today?” on Tuesday, September 14, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at its theatre (2304 N. Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors). This presentation coincides with the kickoff of Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 Season with The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson this October. This true-story scandalous period drama chronicling the 1914 Long Beach sex scandal launched the theatre company’s award-winning decade-long run.

This free, public event will review the advancements of South Florida law enforcement in how they interact with the LGBT+ community and promote diversity and inclusion, internally. Guest panelists will include Lieutenant Paul Auerbach of Broward Sheriff’s Office, Assistant Chief of Police Darren Brodsky of Wilton Manors Police Department, Captain Michael Dodson of Fort Lauderdale Police Department, FAU Professor Emeritus and author Fred Fejes, PhD. and Trans Advocate Kat Rio. This forum is supported by Equality Florida and the GLBX Council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.

The Twentieth Century Way by Tom Jacobson runs from October 1 – 31, 2021. Viewers will become engaged in this true story of two actors who hired themselves out to the Long Beach Police Department in 1914 to entrap “social vagrants” in public restrooms. Thirty-one men were arrested, and the ensuing scandal led to an ordinance against “oral sodomy” in California.

Behind the Red Curtain is a free public forum. Guests may attend in-person or participate virtually. Registration is required by visiting islandcitystage.org.

Island City Stage’s 10th anniversary 2021-22 season will also feature Armature by Andrew Kramer from January 27 – February 27, 2022; Suddenly, Last Summer by Tennessee Williams from March 17 – April 17, 2022; The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam from June 9 – July 10, 2022; and One In Two by Donja R.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Cesar A. Becerra on the next August 12 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at https://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBecerra.

Cesar A. Becerra is the author of Orange Blossom 2.0, a soon-to-be-released novel debuting in conjunction with the City of Miami’s 125th anniversary. Orange Blossom 2.0 is based on Becerra’s decades of research that tells the true story of the founding of Miami and the remarkable contributions of landowner, developer and savvy businesswoman Mary Brickell who seems to have been largely overlooked and overshadowed in the pages of our past. The book is available for purchase at www.sofloweird.com/product-page/orange-blossom-2-0

A South Florida historian who’s taken part in chronicling and sharing the stories of the region for more than two decades, Becerra is the author of half a dozen books ranging from hiking the Appalachian Trail to the logging history of the Big Cypress Preserve. Becerra is an avid explorer who drove through all 50 states in a one-year road trip to rediscover America for The Travel Channel. He has also hiked the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia, in 388 days through 14 states and 4 seasons. Becerra is former publisher of The Everglade Magazine, an award winning publication printed during Everglades National Park’s 50th anniversary. He has walked, hiked, slogged, canoed, kayaked, airboated and swamp buggied all across the Everglades. In 1997, The Miami Herald named him an “Everglades Evangelist.” Cesar’s love for the past and sense of adventure is where his two worlds unite. He has a penchant for hidden history and knows no boundaries or distances when it comes to searching for it.

Becerra joins previous novelists Dr. Joe Knetsch and Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Florida historian Dr. Joe Knetsch on the next July 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorKnetsch.

Knetsch is the co-author with Pamela Gibson of the recently released Florida in World War I (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press, ISBN: 978-1467148290), a historical deep dive into the role a sparsely populated and largely rural Florida played as America plunged into World War I. The book delves into the state’s sacrifices and contributions with a look at its naval accomplishments – the proud USS Florida, too often mentioned as a mere adjunct to the Atlantic Fleet, receives a just accounting, as does the utterly devastating loss of the USS Tampa, the highest death toll the navy suffered in the war. Sunshine State foresters served critical roles abroad, and local libraries became essential hubs for promoting rationing and reporting news from overseas. Floridian aid workers and soldiers training for departure were stricken with the Spanish flu, a pandemic that shook the globe with force equal to the war itself.

Dr. Joe Knetsch is the author of more than 200 articles and 12 books concerning Florida history. This is his sixth book for Arcadia/The History Press and covers an area in which he has a strong interest. He has been a constant reviewer of military history books for the Journal of America’s Military Past and other professional journals. He holds a doctorate from Florida State University and, for 28 years, was the historian for the Division of State Lands, Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Since his retirement, he has continued to research and publish history. He lives in Tallahassee with his wife, Linda, and their five cats. Knetsch’s works are available through amazon.com and www.arcadiapublishing.com.

Knetsch joins novelist Y.M. Masson, architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

Nonprofit Aims to Bulldoze Barriers Affecting Diversity in Miami
MCCJ to Conduct an Open Discussion as the Nation Struggles with Racism

MIAMI, Fl., June 2021 — Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the U.S. is right around the corner. Historically designated on June 19th, it’s a day for ALL of us to celebrate. For MCCJ, the non-profit organization that advocates for diversity and equality, it’s a day to reflect in dialogue and plan for a better future. As part of their “Can We Talk? Really, Can We Talk?” series, MCCJ will present “Bulldozing Barriers: Reflections of Juneteenth & Diversity in Miami” — an effort to encourage continuous self-development and respect not just for the black community, but for all cultures.

“We invite people of all races, religions and cultures to join us in conversation as we acknowledge a period in history that should have shaped and influenced our society, but due to ongoing discord and violence against people of color and religious backgrounds over this past year, it’s become clear that we are regressing rather than progressing,” says MCCJ’s Executive Director, Matthew Anderson. He will be moderating a frank discussion about racial fears and how it affects our progress for a more inclusive community. Following the panel discussion, people are invited to enjoy the “One Way” exhibit at the Hampton Art Lovers, a non-profit art gallery that advocates for black art, and is open to all who love art in all its forms.

Panelists Include:
– Marilyn Holifield, Partner, Holland & Knight and MCCJ Silver Medallion winner
– Saif Ishoof, Vice President for Engagement FIU and MCCJ Silver Medallion winner
– Matthew Beatty, COO Carrie Meek Foundation
– Pamela Fuertes, Executive Director, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program at Miami Dade College
– Deborah Koch, Executive Director at American Red Cross of Greater Miami
– Kathryn Mikesell, Founder, Fountainhead Residency
– Esther Park, Vice President of Programming Oolite Arts
– Matt Anderson, Executive Director, MCCJ (Moderator)

MASK
PROTOCOL:
The panelists will hold this conversation outdoors under a big tent. In an abundance of caution, we urge thoughtful consideration when it comes to wearing a mask and maintaining six feet of separation.

ABOUT MCCJ:
MCCJ, Inc. was originally founded in Miami in 1935 as the Miami Branch of the National Conference of Christians & Jews. Later on, the group was renamed the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews. In 2011, in recognition of its embrace of people of ALL faiths and secular backgrounds, the organization formally changed its name to MCCJ, Inc. Today, it goes beyond its original intent by creating a haven for dialog, training inclusive leaders and promoting understanding for all faiths, races and cultures through education, advocacy and conflict resolution.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Y.M. Masson 6/10/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring Y.M. Masson
Thursday, 06/10/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom session

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature Broward County novelist Y.M. Masson on the next June 10 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorMasson.

Masson is the author of When Paris Was Dark (ISBN 978-1-946886-09-5), a story of a young boy’s fear, courage, despair and determination during the World War II German occupation of France. The tale mirrors Masson’ own experiences during this turbulent time. It won third place in the Royal Palm Literary Awards from the Florida Writers Association 2018 competition.

As a young boy Y. M. Masson (Yves) struggled through four years of hardship under German occupation of Paris until he was liberated by the American Third Army. Twenty years later, after having served in the French army in North Africa during the French-Algerian war, he left France for New York City and became a United States citizen in the early seventies. After working as a marketing executive in corporate America, and then running his own consulting business, Masson turned to the arts. He is an accomplished portrait artist, but loves to share his life experiences with his readers. He knows what war does to people and especially to children. His ability to describe their daily fears, their devastating hunger, and the despair of deprivation draws his audience into their conflict.

Masson’s other novels include The War Inside His Mind (ISBN: 978-1-946886-13-2) and Never Give Up (ISBN 978-1-946886-14-9). All works are available at his website at www.ymmassonauthor.com.

Masson joins architect and historic preservation consultant Arthur Jay Marcus, historian John Bailey, plus authors Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

Arthur Jay Marcus, an architect, photographer and historic preservation consultant, is the author of The Architecture of Whimsy: Mid-20th-Century Architecture in South Florida, a lexicon examining the quixotic architectural expressions fund on select Mid-20th-Century Modern commercial buildings in South Florida.

With brief biographies of architects and street maps pinpointing the location of each building, this book offers tourists, architects, history buffs and preservationist a new context and appreciation for these works of art, many of which are endangered. The book is available on Amazon.

Architecture and photography have been Marcus’ life-long passions from an early age. While maintaining an architectural studio in South Beach for 24 years prior to moving to Fort Lauderdale about six years ago, Marcus continued to take photographs of the south Florida architectural environment. His practice currently specializes in historic preservation consulting. A native of Philadelphia, Marcus graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Temple University and a Master of Architecture degree from Carnegie Mellon University.

Junior Achievement of South Florida launches Girls Rule – one amazing initiative and two exciting virtual events that celebrate, empower, and inspire women and girls.

Girls Rule with Title Sponsor Comerica Bank and Presenting Sponsor Bluegreen Vacations, kicks off with The Girls Rule Launch Event on Tuesday, March 16, from noon-1:15 p.m. “We are bringing together today’s resilient and forward-thinking women together to connect around a common vision to transform and advance the world for future generations of women,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President & CEO.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network. Guests will be inspired by Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Her company is best known for its award-winning Hint® water, the leading unsweetened flavored water, with more than 150 employees and $150 million in sales.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

Breakout session topics will cover self-care, goal setting, financial wellness, self-invention, personal branding, making responsible choices, building positive relationships, self-acceptance, effective teamwork, the power of positivity and effective communication/public speaking.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

For $100, they can also receive a copy of Kara’s book “Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters”.

For over a year now, COVID-19 has been negatively impacting many aspects of our lives, including our relationships.

Join us for a free, one-hour webinar with Albizu University’s top professors to learn some new relationship repair skills!

The event will explore the relationship conflict process, from what happens to our bodies physiologically during an argument, to differences and psychosocial influences among age groups in how we relate to one another.

Albizu professor and neuropsychologist Dr. Isaac Tourgeman will moderate the program, which will also explain how therapy can help you, and give suggestions on how to find a therapist who best fits your needs.

Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will launch the first segment of its “Meet the Author,” interactive Zoom series with Palm Beach County-based Donn R. Colee, Jr. author of Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press), on February 11 at noon. The series, featuring local writers of all genres, will continue on the second Thursday of each month.

Colee Jr. is a seventh-generation Floridian and a direct descendent of George Colee, who immigrated to the St. Augustine area from England in 1821. Donn grew up in Orlando but frequently visited relatives in the ancient city, where his curiosity was piqued by stories about a massacre of long-ago family members at Fort Lauderdale’s New River. While the “Colee Massacre” story was later debunked, it refused to die. His Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River began as an attempt to finally resolve the last vestiges of that myth, but the power of New River quickly propelled the book to become a history of the river, its fascinating people, and the transformation of its wilderness into a metropolis. This is his second book. His first, Towers in the Sand, is the history of radio and television stations in Florida and the people who brought them to life. His family has been engaged in Florida broadcasting for three generations. Colee is a member of the Florida Historical Society, History Fort Lauderdale, St. Augustine Historical Society and Historical Society of Palm Beach County. He is a former commissioner of the Florida Inland Navigation District, the state agency responsible for maintenance and improvements of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from Fernandina Beach to Key Biscayne. It was built by a company that was cofounded in 1881 by his great-great-great-grandfather, who became its civil engineer. Donn and his wife, Martha, reside in Palm Beach Gardens.

Upcoming authors will be announced. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthor .

Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe RESCHEDULED 2/11/21

Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 06:00 pm-07:00 pm
Facebook
Cost: Free with RSVP

Business for the Arts Broward (BFA) kicks off the New Year with its ongoing Arts Mean Business Speaker Series (AMB) featuring a free virtual presentation and live Q&A with artist Federico Uribe.

Viewers who wish to attend must email their RSVP to rvegas@bfabroward.org by Wednesday, February 10 to receive the invitation link.

A native of Bogota, Colombia, Uribe has become a prominent artist featured in North and South America, Russia, England and Italy. After completing his studies at the University of Los Andes, he left Bogota in the late 1980s to pursue a master of fine arts degree in New York. After working and studying for many years in Cuba, Mexico, Russia and England, he finally settled in Miami, where he resides today.

Beginning his art career strictly as a painter who created sensual and brooding canvases influenced by his dark reflections on the Catholic sense of pain, guilt and sexuality, Uribe later expanded his work to create unique installations and sculptures in the mid-90s. His current work resists classification and emerges from intertwining everyday objects like bullet shells, pencils, neckties or electric wires in surprising ways to create boldly beautiful paintings and sculptures which become instruments of a new aesthetic, full of color, irony and lively playfulness.

AMB is just one of several ways BFA supports local artists while fostering cultural vitality, creative success and economic development. BFA continuously supports the local arts community and promotes local artists, cultural non-profits and diverse art-related projects. BFA annually hosts several events in addition to AMB, including Art & Soul, Art in the Workplace, Art Curation and Art+Stroll.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

For real estate professionals looking to take their career to the next level, My State MLS, the first nationwide Multiple Listing Service of its kind with agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, is hosting free webinars throughout October, November and December.

The October and November webinars will cover everything from video marketing and creating a lead generating website to tips on manufactured housing listings and how to get through slow months. The December webinars will focus on “Heating Up a Cool Market” to help real estate professionals navigate the winter months and generating sales.

All webinars take place on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. ET. Please see webinar schedule and registration details below:

Oct. 22, 2–3 p.m. ET: Lights, Camera, Go Live: Video Marketing for Real Estate
In an increasingly digital world, creating video content isn’t just a good idea for marketing a business – it’s critical to its success. Videos receive better social media engagement, increase email open rates and can even improve SEO. Even better, there’s no need for fancy gear or lengthy scripts to get started. Join My State MLS live to learn everything to get started with video marketing for real estate.

Oct. 29, 2–3 p.m. ET: Don’t Get Spooked by the Slow Season
Winter months are an opportunity to help buyers make their listings stand out in a less crowded market. Join My State MLS to learn how to keep spirits up during the slow season, the best ways to market a listing, tips to avoid being ghosted by buyers and where to find off-market listings that are ready to come back from the dead.

Nov. 5, 2–3 p.m. ET: The MLS for Manufactured Housing
Most MLSs don’t cater to mobile or manufactured housing sales. If they do allow manufactured housing listings, chances are they don’t provide the tools that brokers, dealers and park owners need to succeed. Sound familiar? It’s time to meet the MLS made for manufactured housing. With unique fields just for listings, top-tier syndication and superior tools for teams, learn more about My State MLS.

Nov. 12, 2–3 p.m. ET: Go Google Yourself: Creating Website for Real Estate

NSU Lecture Series: Japanese Kaiju Toys and Contemporary Art (Premiere) 7/9/20

Thursday, 07/09/2020-, 06:00 pm-07:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free

Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and The Consulate-General of Japan in Miami are proud to present Japanese Kaiju Toys and Contemporary Art, an online lecture that will premiere on NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s YouTube channel on Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public and all those interested in viewing may register at www.nsuartmuseum.org/event.

Hosted by Professor James B. Levy, Professor at Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law and a longtime collector of Japanese kaiju toys, this virtual presentation will explore the history and cultural impact of the kaiju – an array of fictional giant monster-like characters that have transcended Japanese culture to become hugely popular among science fiction fans, artists, scholars, and folklore lovers around the globe – in toy form. The lecture will also delve into how these colorful collectibles have changed how many define art and how it is collected.

First depicted during the 1960s and ‘70s in Japanese television shows, these giant monsters were usually shown battling super-heroes trying to save cities from destruction. Their quick rise in popularity prompted Japanese companies to produce an array of soft vinyl monster toys based on their characters. Decades later, these kaiju collectibles were rediscovered by collectors including influential artists, musicians, designers and writers who were attracted by their fanciful, creative designs and wild, psychedelic colors, and are responsible for starting the urban vinyl collector movement, which has been embraced by artists like KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Kenny Scharf, Yoshimoto Nara and Takashi Murakami. Some of these artists are currently being featured in NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale’s Happy! exhibition, recently extended through August 30.

Two-time photography participant Sonya Sanchez-Arias (Trinidad) shares pieces from her “Fragments” collection, in which images she has captured from the Caribbean region are digitally manipulated, printed on metal, and mounted on natural, reclaimed materials. Mixed-media artist Krystle Sabdul (Jamaica) has included a variety of expressive, oversized portraits. The historical aspect of the exhibition, curated by Calibe Thompson (Jamaica), traces the Caribbean community’s roots in Broward through news clippings, archival photos and information displaying the influence of diverse island people on the vibrant fabric of Greater Fort Lauderdale.

Support for the project has been provided, in part, by the Broward County Cultural Division and the following Funds at the Community Foundation of Broward: Helen and Frank Stoykov Charitable Endowment Fund, David and Francie Horvitz Family Fund, Ann Adams Fund, Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund, Blockbuster Entertainment Unrestricted Fund, Robert E. Dooley Unrestricted Fund for Broward, Harold D. Franks Fund and Jan Moran Unrestricted Fund.

History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history.

Meet Award-Winning “Fly, Fly Away” Author Pamela Bauer Mueller at History Fort Lauderdale 3/23/20

Meet Award-Winning “Fly, Fly Away” Author Pamela Bauer Mueller at History Fort Lauderdale

History Fort Lauderdale (New River Inn)
231 SW Second Avenue,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301

Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, continues to celebrate Women’s History Month with an exclusive opportunity to meet award-winning “Fly, Fly Away” (Piñata Publishing; ISBN 978-0-9809163-6-2) author Pamela Bauer Mueller on Monday, March 23, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., in The New River Inn (231 Southwest Second Avenue in Downtown Fort Lauderdale). The event is free. Mueller will be sharing passages and signing copies of her newest book that introduces readers to the dramatic, heart-wrenching true story of “Pedro Pan” children.

Pamela Bauer Mueller has a well-deserved reputation for showcasing men and women of significance in American history. Now through impeccable research and expressive writing, she introduces thousands of Pedro Pan children and their families through carefully crafted stories of three-dimensional characters.

“Fly, Fly Away” takes a bold step away from her seven award-winning historical novels. She shares the unforgettable story of how families coped with the loss of their beloved children, how compassionate Americans mobilized a major national campaign to give those children a chance to find happiness, and how the children rushed into independent lifestyles, one trial and error at a time. Mueller weaves together unforgettable tales of loss, resourcefulness and romance, recounted by brave adolescents thrown into a new world of uncertainty and constant culture shock. The result is a compelling story of the Cuban revolution from the point of view of resilient youngsters and families facing setbacks and inspiration.

Mueller’s meticulous research and extensive interviews with people who lived through the Pedro Pan movement also give readers insight into an historic example of America’s generosity as a nation and history of compassionate sharing with neighbors in dire need.

The winner of three Georgia Author of the Year awards, Mueller based “Fly, Fly Away” on meticulous research and extensive interviews with many participants and experts. Historical facts are developed and showcased with creative story-telling and memorable characters.

Entrance to the meet and great is complimentary with an RSVP at Eventbrite at http://bit.ly/HFLMuellerAuthorSigning.

In addition to author signings, the nonprofit History Fort Lauderdale also hosts a variety of yearly multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Also currently on display for Women’s History Month is “Through the Sawgrass: Women Impacting South Florida History,” a photo exhibit. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

Pioneer of the Créolité movement, Raphaël Confiant interweaves excerpts from his writings with musings on Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard Glissant to unpack issues underlying Where the Oceans Meet, such as the interplay between language and identity.

Raphaël Confiant was born in Le Lorrain, Martinique. He studied English and political science at the Sciences Po Aix, and law at Paul Cézanne University in Aix-en-Provence, France. During the 1970s, Confiant became a militant proponent of use of the Creole language, and later worked with Jean Bernabé and Patrick Chamoiseau to create the Créolité movement. Together, the three authors wrote the movement’s seminal text, Eloge de la créolité (In Praise of Creoleness, 1989), in addition to other theoretical texts. The Créolité movement is often characterized as a reaction to the Négritude movement, which emphasized the African origins of the Antillean people. Créolité, on the other hand, emphasizes the diversity of Antillean ancestry and cultural heritage, which also includes Chinese, Indian, and European influences. The movement seeks to understand the diverse identities and histories of the people of the Antilles through the lens of literature and language and eschews the universal in favor of a diverse view of language and identity. Confiant is a well-known writer in both Creole and French and is currently a lecturer at the University of the French West Indies and Guiana (UAG).

MOAD presents a series of public programs related to its current exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet. Rather than a formal sit-down lecture, MOAD’s “Discussions In Situ” are engaging, conversational, and scholarly exhibition tours lead by a wide array of interdisciplinary experts. While pointing to specific art work and archival material on view, Tsang sparks a conversation on “The Hidden Cabrera,” highlighting Cabrera’s biography and research methods.

Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The show is comprised of an international group of artists and collectives consider notions of shifting and porous borders—and how crossing borders has shaped our world. They articulate various aspects of the two scholars’ thoughts on race, diaspora, colonialization, creolization, language, and territory, particularly with regards to Miami’s position in a world that never stops turning. Where the Oceans Meet will be on view until January 12, 2020.

The documentary feature Nueva Venecia portrays the inhabitants of a small village in the Santa Marta marsh in Colombia, who live on the water and make a living by fishing. Their lives changed drastically on November 22, 2000, when a paramilitary group slaughtered 37 people and forced the other villagers to move out. In spite of the horror and the possibility of further acts of violence, the community eventually returned, choosing to face the hazards of new assaults rather than quit their way of life. Things did change, however, as fishing-boat memorials and ceremonies to honor the dead have become familiar, as have constant pleas to the authorities for justice. Something else keeps people together: soccer, played again on the field built on stilts, long hidden under water. Sport provides the only hope for a way out for many of the local youngsters, who dream of both social and economic improvement, and of being discovered by some scout or club agent to become Colombian soccer stars.

Artists Daniel Boyd and Andros Zins-Browne join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie MOAD’s new exhibition Where the Oceans Meet. How have Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant’s writings and methodologies influenced practices in contemporary art and curation? How do notions the two Caribbean writers explored (such as globality, creolization, and cosmology) help us make sense of historic narratives and our contemporary moment? What does it mean to think, live, and act where the oceans meet.

This event inaugurates the Museum of Art and Design at MDC’s new exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet (May 26 to September 29, 2019) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant. The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition considers notions of shifting and porous borders—geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic—and how crossing borders has shaped our world.

Frontline communities in South Florida have been fighting against exploratory oil drilling in the Everglades for years. Now the stakes are even higher: the case against Kanter Real Estate has made its way to Florida’s Supreme Court, and we have to take urgent action to stop them.

With Kanter doubling down on its efforts to drill in the Everglades, we’re not backing down or going away. In fact, we’re doubling down too: getting ready to fight harder and smarter, training, connecting, and growing the fossil fuel resistance right here in our community.

That’s why the Promise to Protect Training Tour is coming to Miami. The Promise to Protect was originally created to resist the Keystone XL pipeline, but now the promise has expanded nationwide to inspire organizers like us fighting for the Everglades in South Florida to stand up and refuse fossil fuel projects from entering our backyard.

Can you join us for one of the upcoming trainings?

The Promise to Protect Training Tour is an opportunity for us to learn from Indigenous leadership on how we can protect our threatened environment and frontline communities from toxic and destructive extraction that does nothing but harm people and our planet.

This training will share knowledge from Indigenous leaders on the frontlines of the Keystone XL fight that can share best practices on how we can unite to fight for the Everglades. You’ll learn about nonviolent direct action, support roles that make nonviolent direct action possible, protocols for mobilizing in Lakota territory, and how to carry this work forward as we challenge the higher court officials.

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

NAMI Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival 5/19/19

Donna Shalala Center
1330 Miller Dr.,
Miami, Florida 33146
Website
Cost: $10

NAMI Miami-Dade County expects to attract thousands of people and seat close to 800 people at the 4th Annual Reel Minds Miami Mental Health Film Festival at the University of Miami’s Donna E. Shalala Center on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. This year’s festival will showcase six short films. The narratives behind these films will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower people. Following each short film, an individual with a lived experience of a mental health challenge will speak on the films’ topic for a few minutes providing further insight about the message behind each film.

This year’s lineup is comprised of films from a variety of talented directors, including a member of the International Cinematographers Guild, a multi-award-winning actor and Navy Veteran, and an award-winning filmmaker. The six films were chosen out of almost 200 submissions based on their compelling storytelling and way of educating and dispelling the myth behind mental illness. Submitted films were judged by film makers, clinicians, high school and college students, individuals with mental illness and their family members.

The 2019 lineup includes Terms of Us by director, writer, producer Roberto Sanchez, a Cuban born, Miami raised Navy Veteran who has a recurring role on Queen of the South. Additionally, Roberto will be speaking at the festival; Baby Steps from Los Angeles director, Eric Dyson; Misdirection by Carly Usdin, a University of Central Florida graduate with Miami ties, now an award-winning filmmaker based in Los Angeles; Reverie by Nick Markham; Saving Billy by Vickie Adams; and UkeLayla, directed and produced by a team of recent Miamians and graduates from the University of Central Florida.

“Films are a compelling storytelling form that connects with our deepest sensibilities, and research suggests that film festivals have a positive impact on stigma and recovery in mental illness. That’s why for the fourth consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness,” says Kathryn Coppola, Executive Director at NAMI Miami. “Together, we can spark the awareness that makes the difference in our society.” NAMI Miami’s goal is to “end the silence” and to start the conversation about mental health proving that recovery is possible.
