Kyle Mays Lecture | When Did Black People Lose Their Indigeneity? 

Wednesday, February 6, 5:30PM

Hopkins Center for the Arts | Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

Kyle T. Mays (Black/Saginaw Anishinaabe) is an Assistant Professor at UCLA and a transdisciplinary scholar and public intellectual of urban history, Indigenous Studies, Afro-Indigenous Studies, and popular culture.

He recently published his first book, “Hip Hop Beats, Indigenous Rhymes: Modernity and Hip Hop in Indigenous North America“ (SUNY Press, 2018). He is finishing his second book titled, “The Indigenous Motor City: Indigenous People and the Making of Modern Detroit” (under contract with the University of Washington Press). He is also working on a new book project tentatively titled, “Black Belonging, Indigenous Sovereignty: Black American and Indigenous Histories in Unexpected Places.’ This book explores the relationship between Black Americans and Indigenous peoples, moving from the foundations of the United States until the present.

His lecture at Dartmouth will be titled: "When Did Black People Lose their Indigeneity?: Reimagining Black and Indigenous Histories."

Sighted Eyes | Feeling Heart Documentary

Thursday, February 7, 7:00PM

Briggs Opera House, White River Junction, VT

This moving documentary of the life of Lorraine Hansberry, writer of the groundbreaking play A Raisin in the Sun, tells the dramatic story of the young, gifted and black woman who chose words to fight injustice––on stage and off.

Lorraine Hansberry boldly challenged American society to live up to its ideals and chose theater as her agent of change. She personified the struggles of the 20th century until her early death at just 34 years old, but her words remain vibrant, revelatory and relevant.

In​ this ​feature-length​ ​documentary,​ ​award-winning​ ​filmmaker Tracy​ ​Heather​ ​Strain​ ​examines​ ​Hansberry’s​ ​life​ ​and​ ​work​ ​using​ ​a​ ​remarkable​ ​collection​ ​of​ ​archival footage,​ ​home​ ​movies,​ ​rare​ ​photos​ ​and​ ​unpublished​ ​documents.​ ​With​ ​materials​ ​from​ ​the Lorraine​ ​Hansberry​ ​Literary​ ​Trust,​ ​and​ ​including​ ​interviews​ ​with​ ​​family,​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​colleagues,​ ​Strain explores​ ​the​ ​full​ ​scope​ ​of​ ​the​ ​author’s​ ​history​ ​for​ ​the​ ​very​ ​first​ ​time.​ Featuring​ ​interviews​ ​with​ ​Hollywood​ ​legends​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Sidney​ ​Poitier,​ ​Ruby​ ​Dee,​ ​Harry​ ​Belafonte, and​ ​Louis​ ​Gossett​ ​Jr.,​ ​who​ ​share​ ​​ ​personal​ ​memories​ of ​collaborating​ ​with​ ​Hansberry,​ the film introduces viewers to ​a​ ​fiercely​ ​intellectual​ ​artist,​ ​activist​ ​and​ ​social​ ​critic​ ​who,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​words​ ​of​ ​Gossett,​ ​“told the​ ​truth​ ​whether​ ​you​ ​liked​ ​it​ ​or​ ​not.”​ ​​ ​​

JAG is excited to partner with White River Indie Films for this event!
