Matthew Alexander Henson: First African-American at the North Pole

Matthew Henson spent years exploring the Arctic with Robert E. Peary and in 1909 he was the only other American to stand with Peary at the North Pole. Henson was excluded from receiving the many honors showered on white members of the expedition. Only near the end of his life did Henson received recognition for his remarkable career as an Arctic explorer. This exhibit is in conjunction with the AF/AM/50 celebrations, celebrating fifty years of Africana Studies, the African American Society, and the John Brown Russwurm African American Center.

Shine A Light - Art and Written Works from Inside the Prison Industrial Complex

Founded in 2001, College Guild provides free non-traditional correspondence courses that connect incarcerated people with a community beyond prison walls, fostering mutual respect through a shared passion for learning.

The very special Gallery Show of Art and Written Word represents some of the 8000 prisoners from all 50 states  that have been offered the opportunity to participate in course work with College Guild and our many volunteers.

Why does College Guild exist? Because the United States has a prison problem and education reduces recidivism.

We are 5% of the world’s population, but hold 25% of the world’s prisoners.

The total incarcerated population in the U.S. is a staggering 2.4 million— a 500% increase over the past 30 years.

One in every 108 adults was in prison or jail in 2012.

One in 28 American children has a parent behind bars.

At the end of 2007, 1 in 31 adults was behind bars, on probation or on parole.

Currently, 65 million Americans have a criminal record.

There are more people behind bars today for a drug offense than there were in 1980 for all offenses combined.

The U.S. spent $80 billion on incarceration in 2010 alone.

“How to Be a Naturalist in the Digital Age” with Nat Wheelwright

Do you enjoy the natural world and would you like to deepen your experience of it? Naturalist Nathaniel T. Wheelright has created some simple, and clever ways to do so, inspiring listeners to become more mindful, curious and knowledgeable about the natural world in the digital age.

The presentation will also describe how Nathaniel conceived of and carried out a year-long weekly series of short Nature Moments, a series of 3 minute videos made in Maine explaining (or capturing) a variety of fascinating and ordinary events. He will also cover his recent Fulbright-funded efforts to export the model to Columbia, where he worked with students to create Momentos Naturales Colombia.

Nat will also describe how he came to write The Naturalist’s Notebook, a beautiful book co-authored with Bernd Heinrich, a guide for people who want to observe what’s happening in their own personal world of nature.

Come learn and expand your understanding of what it means to experience nature.

UUCB Concerts for a Cause: SUEDE

Pop/Jazz/Blues phenom Suede will bring her blend of warmth, wit, and musical artistry to the Brunswick Unitarian Universalist Church on October 26th at 7:30 pm as part of the Concerts for a Cause series. Two-thirds of all monies raised from the 2019-20 Concerts for a Cause Series will be donated to 2 local charities: Tedford Housing and Oasis Free Clinics.

Suede has been a headliner with Melissa Etheridge and Sarah McLachlan and was also Joan Rivers’ opening act. Imagine a cross between Adele, Diana Krall and Bette Midler and you’ll have some idea of Suede’s powerful presence, musical talents, and well-honed skills. Suede plays piano, guitar and trumpet, but voice is her first instrument, and entertaining is clearly her first love.

If Suede doesn’t fit the mold of your typical jazz singer, it’s be-cause of her eclectic repertoire. Her recordings and shows not only include jazz, blues, and swing, but also rock and roll, popular standards, and showtunes. Her early influences have been incredibly varied from the Dukes of Dixieland, Billie Holiday Lena Horne, Sarah Vaughn, Pearl Bailey and Louis Arm-strong to James Taylor, Crosby Stills Nash and Young and the Rolling Stones.

Suede calls Cape Cod home but tours nationally and internationally all year filling the best venues from Boston and New York to San Francisco to New Zealand. She has appeared on ABC’s 20/20, NPR, MTV, and in the film “A Simple Matter of Justice”. Her PBS fundraiser “Suede, Live at Scullers Jazz Club” has aired on over 50 stations nationally. She also holds the dis-tinction of being the first and only female member of the world renowned a cappella group The Flirtations, seen in Jonathan Demme’s film “Philadelphia”. Her CD “On the Day We Met” features “Emily Remembers”, which became the number 1 song of the year on WJZW jazz radio in Washington, DC.

When the late great Bea Arthur (“Maude”) saw Suede perform, she told her, “Thank you for the most f#!*ng incredible night of my life in an audience. You are to die for.”

Tickets: $30 in advance, $35 at the door, $10 students/children. Available at the church office, Gulf of Maine Books, or online at suede.brownpapertickets.com

The Theater Project presents MIDDLETOWN

The Theater Project presents MIDDLETOWN written by Will Eno and directed by Christopher Price. Opening on November 1st, MIDDLETOWN is a deeply moving and funny play exploring the universe of the American small town. As friendships develop, different lives intersect in strange, poignant ways on a journey that takes them from the local library to outer space and points in between. As director Christopher Price says, “Will Eno writes with a kind of absurdist, abstract and slightly surreal style that, for me, beautifully captures humankind in all its imperfections, those average moments that make up everyday life.  I think that we see ourselves in these characters in ways that we know but are rarely expressed.” Don’t miss this wonderfully evocative, beautifully written play that will leave you thinking about it long after it’s over. Everyone is welcome to attend an opening night reception with refreshments and an opportunity to meet the cast, crew and director after the show. 

MIDDLETOWN opens at The Theater Project on Friday, November 1st and runs for three consecutive weekends. Performance times are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, $10 for children (12 and under; kids under 2 are free as long as they sit on a patron’s lap); top level seating in the theater is always Pay-What-You-Want. 

Tickets are available anytime at theaterproject.com or by calling the box office at 207-729-8584.
