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.

Art Show Opening: Self Portrait with Secret Everything

Thornton Oaks invites the public to the opening reception of Self Portrait with Secret Everything, an exhibit by DiTa Ondek from Tenants Harbor. The reception begins at 4:00 at which time DiTa will discuss her work and respond to questions. There is no admission fee.

DiTa’s zest for life are evident in her still life room vignettes of empty kitchens and old parlors. Her work is the connection of evocative colors, unexpected patterns of light and the sublime quality of ordinary objects.

The exhibit will run through October and November.

UUCB Working for Justice Series first concert: Deeper than the Skin

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick launches this year’s Working for Justice Series “Many Voices: Widening the Listening Circle” on Saturday, November 23, 2019 with a free community concert called “Deeper Than the Skin,” a musical presentation on Race in America by Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway. Reggie and Greg have a unique story. Born three days apart, their ancestry flowed through the same portal of history, Richmond, VA. They are on a pilgrimage together – one that began three decades ago. The racial divisions that are the reality of America started them in two different worlds, but the amazing bonds of music, mutual respect, sheer admiration, and shared vision have brought them together as friends and colleagues.

Their stories together form the quintessential American story. The music that flowed from these experiences is powered by unadorned truth, raw and riveting, beautiful and uplifting. Echoing Gandhi, they believe that in telling our truths, we are able to rise up from the past and build bridges to each other and the future. The presentation will be interactive and there will be time at the end for discussion.

Reggie Harris a Woodrow Wilson Scholar and the Co-Chair of the Living Legacy Project of the Unitarian Universalist Association, co-leading tours through the historic sites of the Civil Rights movement in the South. Solo, and in the duo, Kim and Reggie Harris, he has led hundreds of programs on Race and Social Justice. Greg Greenway has been heard on NPR’s All Things Considered, Mountain Stage, and Car Talk. He’s played Carnegie Hall and had the honor for two years of having his song, “Rosa Parks,” play when rosaparks.com was opened. For eight years, he was one third of the successful Folk Trio Brother Sun. Together and individually, Reggie and Greg have brought the issue of Race before audiences around the world.
