Color might indicate where someone or their ancestors originate; color most certainly signals how they have been treated in our pre-dominantly white culture. On MLK Day 2021, when a racial reckoning shakes loose yet another [...]

The two events I recommend here are among the most joyous presentations of the season, and are just as, if not more effective in virtual form! One marks its 5oth ANNIVERSARY this year, that medieval pageant celebrating the winter solstice known as THE CHRISTMAS REVELS. The second has been a classic on page, stage, and [...]

MOVIE: “LET HIM GO”

I couldn't wait to see Focus Features "LET HIM GO," based on the Larry Watson novel about grandparents who set out to rescue their grandson from the clutches of a dangerous family.
