Rethinking Permaculture Vernal Equinox Convergence: Everyday Strategies for Compassionate Living Hosted by Kailash Ecovillage and Food Not Bombs Please join us for a weekend convergence where we will discover how to transform our lives to be more in line with our heart’s compassionate and harmonious nature. Traditional permaculture has great insights into more sustainable ways to grow our own food – we aim to expand the vision of sustainability to include the practical changes we can make to our daily lives, right now, to create less harm to our world, and to foster a more ecologically sensitive, and more joyfully vibrant, human culture. We will cover techniques to grow more of our own food, but also look at the daily consumer habits and lifestyle patterns that we take for granted, and to explore how they might be transformed to free us from the oppressive and unhealthy aspects of our society. We will consider what it means to practice “spiritual permaculture” – living in a way that honors all living beings, and all the diversity of life on our planet, as our family. In this light, we will focus on practices that don’t confine or cause suffering to other animals for our own (human) benefit. Whether experienced permaculturists, or the newly curious, all are welcome to attend. If you have something you’d like to teach that is in line with our vision, anyone is welcome to facilitate a class – let us know what you’d like to offer! (There will be an opportunity to add classes on the first night of the gathering.) We aspire to offer the kinds of workshops where participants will learn the skills, and receive the support, that can lead to actual, practical, life changes immediately after the weekend. • Veganic farming strategies • Reducing dependence on the money system • Fostering community sharing • Meditation, movement, and sound practices to support a sustainable life • Classes focused on creating real, practical changes in our daily lives, to be implemented now! There is no charge for this event, although donations are welcome. All food will be provided for free – procured from the abundance around us using the strategies we will share! You are encouraged to spend the night on site, also for no charge (indoor or outdoor).

“The Lady Aoi” tells the story of a living ghost. Mouawad: “I didn’t know what a living ghost was until I read this work. In Japanese culture, someone who is out of control with jealousy will unintentionally, in their sleep, bring to life their own living ghost. This ghost will walk the earth and inflict danger on the cause of the jealousy.” The living ghost Lady Rokujo (Jeannie Rogers) haunts Lady Aoi (Gwendolyn Duffy) who is being treated for sex complexes at a strange hospital run by a peculiar nurse (Emily Welsh). On the night of this play, Lady Rokujo encounters Lady Aoi’s husband. The original story has its roots in one of Japan's most legendary collection of stories, “The Tale of Gengi,” written by Murasaki Shikibu in 1005 (on this site – considered “a badass chick of Japanese History”). The first ever novel serial was so popular with the Japanese that by the 15th century the Japanese Noh Drama of the same name had become and remains one of the most popular Noh Dramas to date. Previews – Mar 11 to 17 Opens and Plays – Mar 18 to 27 Show times are Thurs, Fri and Sat at 7:30, Sun at 2:00 $15 to $25 pay what you can For mature audiences, adult content, nudity Tickets can be purchased at the door, or ticketswest.com, or by calling: Imago Theatre 503.231.9581 TicketsWest 503.224.8499 Jerry Mouawad returns to the stage after an 18-month hiatus (last production: Pinter’s “The Homecoming” Oct 2014). Mouawad is staging a Japanese fusion work by Yukio Mishima entitled “The Lady Aoi” that opens at Imago Mar 11. Yukio Mishima is considered one of the most important Japanese authors of the 20th century; he was nominated three times for the Nobel Prize for Literature. For the erotic ghost tale “The Lady Aoi,” Mishima modernized a 15th century Noh play, setting it in a 1956 hospital. Mouawad promises a highly- stylized production accompanied by percussionist Blade Rogers, with sound design by John Berendzen (Liminal) and Greg Ives, lighting by Jeff Forbes and costumes by Sarah Mainsfield, with influences from experimental icon writer/director Richard Foreman (a landmark presentation in 1997 “Pearls for Pigs”in Portland)and riffs from Belgian director Ivo Van Hove (current innovative NY staging of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge).

PassinArt: A Theatre Company is pleased to announce its upcoming production of Smoldering Fires by Kermit Frazier, Tickets information available at www.passinart.net. (Students, seniors, and group rates available.) “Smoldering Fires is an amazing drama that applies the ideas and struggles of the civil rights movement to contemporary city life. Kermit Frazier’s Smoldering Fires allows us to view the world through the eyes and spirit of our youth. The youth of today are not just dealing with the racist conflicts of the 60’s; they are wrestling with the violent attitudes of their own communities’ ‐i.e. guns and drugs that amass the ever present delinquent elements of their surroundings. In this play, youth takes a stand in taking their community back against the odds of being out‐numbered by their peers.” William (Bill) Earl Ray, Director Smoldering Fires features local artists Eric Harris Jr., Ajani Hopkins, Kenneth Dembo, Shelley B. Shelley, Timaya Hepburn, Nena Uke, Sami Yacob‐Andrus, Quante Coles, James Hill Brooks, Ronald Smith; and directed by William (Bill) Earl Ray. “Oh, be fiery. By all means be fiery. Fiery in your words, your nonviolent actions. Fiery in the way you learn and grow. Stay on fire with determination and the drive for change.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you have any questions you may email Jerry Foster at [email protected] call (503) 235‐8079. This production is made possible in part by the Collins Foundation, WillaKenzie Estate, Ronni Lacroute, James F and Marion L Miller Foundation, Regional Arts and Cultural Council, and the MRG Foundation.

In the third installment of the Portland edition of ONDA’s High Desert Speaker Series, Dr. Tom Connolly shares his experiences as one of Oregon’s preeminent cultural anthropologists. From incipient agriculture to paleoenvironmental studies and geoarchaeology to cultural resource management, Dr. Connolly has a special understanding of the high desert’s unique archaeological features. Archaeological work over the past two decades, and continuing study of museum collections made decades ago, are providing new insights on Oregon’s first peoples. Dr. Connolly outlines recent studies that have pushed back evidence for the earliest human presence in the region to about 15,000 years ago, and reviews museum specimens for a clearer understanding of the timing and range of key ancient cultural traditions. Join us as Dr. Connolly takes us on a journey thousands of years in the making. The event will take place at Portland's First Congregational Church, 1126 SW Park Avenue in the Park Blocks. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; please pre-register on Eventbrite.

"Assata Shakur talks about socialist development in Cuba." The former Black Panther and Black Liberation Army cadre who has had political asylum in Cuba since 1984, talks about socialist practices in Cuba, racism, patriarchy, and the way forward for socialist politics. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information. Here is the list of future screenings: Wed, Apr 27th - "Kwame Ture on zionism as Africa's Enemy" Smith 236 Wed, May 18th - "A Message from Women in Gambia" Smith 333

In the early 1900’s Johnson Lake was the premier recreation site in its area. The lake was fed by groundwater springs and the water was so clear your could see to the bottom. In our lifetimes, the lake has seen various forms of pollution. A rigorous clean up effort began once the property was acquired by the city in the ‘90s. Continue to contribute to the health of the Johnson Lake natural area with us by casting native plant seeds at our April 2nd work party. It’s a three step process that includes roughing up the soil, casting seed, and covering the planting area with mulch. This is a great activity for families and groups. Join us! This event runs rain or shine! Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water, rain gear and sturdy shoes. Snacks, tools, training and gloves will be provided. Parents should note that there is a water body on this site. This opportunity is open to volunteers 14 years and older, unless accompanied by an adult. Registration is requested.

PassinArt: A Theatre Company is pleased to announce its upcoming production of Smoldering Fires by Kermit Frazier, Tickets information available at www.passinart.net. (Students, seniors, and group rates available.) “Smoldering Fires is an amazing drama that applies the ideas and struggles of the civil rights movement to contemporary city life. Kermit Frazier’s Smoldering Fires allows us to view the world through the eyes and spirit of our youth.

In this play, youth takes a stand in taking their community back against the odds of being out‐numbered by their peers.” William (Bill) Earl Ray, Director Smoldering Fires features local artists Eric Harris Jr., Ajani Hopkins, Kenneth Dembo, Shelley B. Shelley, Timaya Hepburn, Nena Uke, Sami Yacob‐Andrus, Quante Coles, James Hill Brooks, Ronald Smith; and directed by William (Bill) Earl Ray. “Oh, be fiery. By all means be fiery.

Hey, you can take a class at the Portland Underground Grad School entitled, "The Problem with Privilege: Bias, Fragility, and Taking Action to End Racism": For full information, check out the website: http://www.pugspdx.com/the-problem-with-privilege/ This class is: For those who have a hard time putting their finger on progressive "liberal" forms of racism, and want to be able to name it and/or correct it constructively. For the person who wants a new way to effectively understand and interrupt "isms" of all sort. For those who want to be a powerful ally, and take on race issues without co-opting the issue or otherwise interfering with a community driven process. For anyone who struggles with how to "fix" privilege - you get the idea, you know you have it, but how to remedy the effects when it's largely blind to you (when you didn't ask for it)? For anyone who wants to explore the concepts of White Fragility more completely. It's SUPER HANDY, don't be thrown by the name. This class meets weekly, on Monday evenings, through April.

"My images aim to be twenty-first century relics with roots in the vernacular past. In both content and execution, their purpose is to chronicle the imperfections and impermanence of daily existence, affirming that at its core, life is disorderly, unpredictable, absurd, sometimes disturbing, yet always interesting, and to paraphrase Gabriel Garcia Márquez, also the best thing ever invented—even as we seem to frequently do our very best to test the limits of this idea to the point of extinction.” When artist Peter B. Leighton was nine years old, he saw the science fiction film The Amazing Colossal Man for the first time. It is an unforgettable Cold War parable, featuring a US soldier who is accidentally exposed to nuclear radiation and subsequently morphs into a 60-foot madman before being destroyed by the US Military. Leighton notes this film’s unmistakeable effect on shaping his worldview of embracing the humor and absurdity of life in spite of its tragedies. This outlook also permeates the artist’s inventive series, Man Lives Through Plutonium Blast. For this body of work, Leighton digitally pieces together analog snapshots to create imaginary vernacular photographs of the twentieth century experience, complete with “monochrome men fallen from grace, ambivalent women standing on the cusp of empowerment and reinvention, and feral, free-range children born to run, all with the enduring threat of an end of the world as they know it circling high overhead.” Peter B. Leighton is an artist currently living and working in Tumbaco, Ecuador. In the 1970s he served as an assistant to photographer Tom Wright, who was a key figure in documenting the emerging rock scenes in 1960s Great Britain and the United States. Since the 1980s, Leighton has focused his attention on digital imaging as a viable process for fine printmaking, while also serving as a corporate e-strategist for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishers, and operating a fine arts digital imprint, Penny Prints Press, in Austin, Texas. This is Leighton's first exhibition of Man Lives Through Plutonium Blast. First Thursday Opening Reception April 7, 6:00–9:00 PM Artist Talks: Peter B.

Tim DeChristopher, as Bidder 70, disrupted an illegitimate Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction in December of 2008, by outbidding oil companies for parcels around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. His actions and 21 month imprisonment earned him a national and international media presence, which he has used as a platform to spread the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for bold, confrontational action in order to create a just and healthy world. Tim used his prosecution as an opportunity to organize the climate justice organization Peaceful Uprising in Salt Lake City, and most recently, the Climate Disobedience Center. Cost: $5-20

During this daylong workshop, Sewell Lecture speaker, Tim DeChristopher, will share integrated and multifaith strategies to prevent climate change and environmental injustice, combat poverty and restore dignity to both people and the planet. Tim DeChristopher, as Bidder 70, disrupted an illegitimate Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction in December of 2008, by outbidding oil companies for parcels around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. His actions and 21 month imprisonment earned him a national and international media presence, which he has used as a platform to spread the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for bold, confrontational action in order to create a just and healthy world. Tim used his prosecution as an opportunity to organize the climate justice organization Peaceful Uprising in Salt Lake City, and most recently, the Climate Disobedience Center. $40, includes ticket to lecture

The concert title comes from the West African adage, "It takes a village to raise a child", and this theme starts with a choral setting of that text composed by Joan Szymko. The idea of unity in "It Takes A Village" is musically depicted in how the voices grow together. Szymko has, in her own words, "sought to embody the cultural concept behind the proverb-that it is truly ALL the individual parts linked and working together that create and support the whole." The "It Takes A Village"concert showcases music that reflects this celebration of unity. As usual, Sotori will include a rich and eclectic mix of musical styles-and for the first time will include the children's voices of Buckman Elementary School.

Kermit Frazier’s Smoldering Fires allows us to view the world through the eyes and spirit of our youth. The youth of today are not just dealing with the racist conflicts of the 60’s; they are wrestling with the violent attitudes of their own communities’ ‐i.e. guns and drugs that amass the ever present delinquent elements of their surroundings. In this play, youth takes a stand in taking their community back against the odds of being out‐numbered by their peers.” ​William (Bill) Earl Ray, Director Smoldering Fires features local artists Eric Harris Jr., Ajani Hopkins, Kenneth Dembo, Shelley B. Shelley, Timaya Hepburn, Nena Uke, Sami Yacob‐Andrus, Quante Coles, James Hill Brooks, Ronald Smith; and directed by William (Bill) Earl Ray. “Oh, be fiery. By all means be fiery. Fiery in your words, your nonviolent actions. Fiery in the way you learn and grow.

Come and enjoy one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, OPS Style! As always, all of our shows are free :) About the Company: Original Practice Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to bringing a new style of Shakespearean performance to the Portland area by reviving the old. When Shakespeare originally penned and performed his plays, theatrical practices were very different than modern audiences are accustomed to. First Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses. OPS Fest performs using the same techniques as they did in Shakespeare's own time, which means limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast paced, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel to the performances. Come prepared to cheer, boo, and generally reply (as a group) to what you're seeing onstage - the OPS actors thrive on it! Forget whatever audience rules you've learned. That mythical "fourth wall" you've heard of doesn't exist in an OPS production.

Who Are My People? is a documentary film on the current and controversial topic of the build-out of large scale renewable energy in the deserts of the West. The LA Times indicates we are at a "Flashpoint" between competing value-systems. Bodies have been exhumed and geoglyphs destroyed in an area that is a long-term indigenous settlement. WHO ARE MY PEOPLE? depicts how the world's energy firms have met their match in a small group of Native American elders, in the hottest desert on the planet. The film takes us behind the scenes of two of the largest solar projects in the world, "fast-tracked" by US renewable energy policies. Director Robert Lundahl, Alfredo Figueroa and friends will host a ‘free range’ conversation with audience members drumming, dancing and sharing stories KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

There’s an amazing spiritual flow at an Eckankar seminar as the Light and Sound and Divine Love of God begin working for you, in you, through you in service to you and to others. There’s an almost indescribable and positive “something more” to everything that happens at the seminar. The people of Eckankar, the members, seem like everyday people from all walks of life, but there’s something more to them, too. That “something more” may be what you want. Will you go to the Eckankar seminar to get it? Or will you deprive yourself of a possible life-changing, life-enhancing, life-enriching interaction with the spirit of God that can continue to grow in you as long as you want? The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar, April 15-17, at the University Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon, is free to sample for those who are not yet members of Eckankar. Read on to hear about the kinds of experiences people have at Eckankar seminars. You can learn more about this seminar at http://eckankar-oregon.org/ or call 800-336-9756. Each person experiences this flow of Divine Spirit in his or her own way. Some feel a sense of coming/being home, a sense of great comfort and calm. The original music and stories shared at the seminar bring the warm glow of inspiration to others. For some, a problem or challenging situation suddenly has a workable solution. Often, people discover a place to go where other people have come to the same or similar conclusions about the spiritual life as they have. Some people feel as though they have found the spiritual path for which they have been searching their whole lives and wish they could have found it much sooner. The muscles around the mouths and jaws of some may ache a little with added work as people discover that they are smiling more and wider than on any previous occasion. Some may meet those who seem like long-lost friends that they haven’t seen this lifetime until that moment—a reuniting takes place between Souls who have shared precious moments in other lifetimes. Some may hear sounds or music that are unheard by others—God’s sound and a special communication to those Souls. Some may experience light or lights in new ways—more of God’s communication with Soul. Others may experience profound divine love. Miracles or unusually enjoyable “coincidences” may occur for others. At Eckankar seminars, it’s much more than people speaking or performing or leading workshops and roundtables. A divine spiritual presence flows through everything that happens to highlight and enhance a benefit offered to those who will receive it. This is a small sampling of the kinds of experiences people have had at Eckankar seminars. What will you experience? Come to this seminar and see for yourself. The only way to discover the amazing differences between Eckankar and other spiritual paths is to allow yourself to experience, not just read about but experience the wonders of the spiritual life that members of Eckankar in more than 140 countries are exploring daily. Try some ECK Spiritual Exercises for a couple of months to build your spiritual muscles and abilities to have new spiritual experiences. Give yourself a chance to experience how Eckankar’s spiritual guide, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, can assist you on your personal spiritual path to God as well as in your daily life. The spiritual freedom and lack of pressure that is so much a part of Eckankar’s culture recognizes the freedom you have to make your own decisions, especially the freedom to stay with Eckankar and its teachings or to go to another teaching that has value to you. The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar will feature guest speaker and performer Rodney Jones, a professional jazz musician and master teacher at The Juilliard School. He tells great stories about his spiritual experiences and can tell you how to improve your own. There will also be other members of Eckankar speaking about their experiences, conducting workshops and roundtables, performing their original spiritual music, showing their spiritual art, and being there to hear all about your spiritual experiences and wishes. All of this is geared towards helping you on your personal path to God. You can learn more about Eckankar by visiting: Eckankar's website http://www.eckankar.org/ Eckankar's video presentations https://www.youtube.com/user/EckankarOfficialSite

Linnton Creek is a principle stream in Forest Park, one of the main trail heads in the north end of the park, and its confluence with the Willamette River will have a new lagoon, as part of the the 27 acre Linnton Plywood Mill site's restoration as animal habitat (a Superfund mitigation site). We are restoring the creek trail head, removing ivy and blackberry, planting natives, and installing an interpretive sign, trash can and custom (and amusing) dog waste bag dispenser designed by noted artist Ivan McLean. Part of a broad effort to eliminate dog waste from the park, this site is particularly important as the creek will flow into a new lagoon designed as a resting place for salmon fry, where clean water will be crucial. At the moment the main effort is ivy removal and the planting of almost 300 native plants. Hot and cold beverages, pastries, tools and gloves are provided. We'll be having a celebration of the project's completion in June. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Native Planting.

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building. So mark your calendars and invite a handy friend!

There’s an amazing spiritual flow at an Eckankar seminar as the Light and Sound and Divine Love of God begin working for you, in you, through you in service to you and to others. There’s an almost indescribable and positive “something more” to everything that happens at the seminar. The people of Eckankar, the members, seem like everyday people from all walks of life, but there’s something more to them, too. That “something more” may be what you want. Will you go to the Eckankar seminar to get it? Or will you deprive yourself of a possible life-changing, life-enhancing, life-enriching interaction with the spirit of God that can continue to grow in you as long as you want? The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar, April 15-17, at the University Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon, is free to sample for those who are not yet members of Eckankar. Read on to hear about the kinds of experiences people have at Eckankar seminars. You can learn more about this seminar at http://eckankar-oregon.org/ or call 800-336-9756. Each person experiences this flow of Divine Spirit in his or her own way. Some feel a sense of coming/being home, a sense of great comfort and calm. The original music and stories shared at the seminar bring the warm glow of inspiration to others. For some, a problem or challenging situation suddenly has a workable solution. Often, people discover a place to go where other people have come to the same or similar conclusions about the spiritual life as they have. Some people feel as though they have found the spiritual path for which they have been searching their whole lives and wish they could have found it much sooner. The muscles around the mouths and jaws of some may ache a little with added work as people discover that they are smiling more and wider than on any previous occasion. Some may meet those who seem like long-lost friends that they haven’t seen this lifetime until that moment—a reuniting takes place between Souls who have shared precious moments in other lifetimes. Some may hear sounds or music that are unheard by others—God’s sound and a special communication to those Souls. Some may experience light or lights in new ways—more of God’s communication with Soul. Others may experience profound divine love. Miracles or unusually enjoyable “coincidences” may occur for others. At Eckankar seminars, it’s much more than people speaking or performing or leading workshops and roundtables. A divine spiritual presence flows through everything that happens to highlight and enhance a benefit offered to those who will receive it. This is a small sampling of the kinds of experiences people have had at Eckankar seminars. What will you experience? Come to this seminar and see for yourself. The only way to discover the amazing differences between Eckankar and other spiritual paths is to allow yourself to experience, not just read about but experience the wonders of the spiritual life that members of Eckankar in more than 140 countries are exploring daily. Try some ECK Spiritual Exercises for a couple of months to build your spiritual muscles and abilities to have new spiritual experiences. Give yourself a chance to experience how Eckankar’s spiritual guide, the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master, can assist you on your personal spiritual path to God as well as in your daily life. The spiritual freedom and lack of pressure that is so much a part of Eckankar’s culture recognizes the freedom you have to make your own decisions, especially the freedom to stay with Eckankar and its teachings or to go to another teaching that has value to you. The Oregon Eckankar Regional Seminar will feature guest speaker and performer Rodney Jones, a professional jazz musician and master teacher at The Juilliard School. He tells great stories about his spiritual experiences and can tell you how to improve your own. There will also be other members of Eckankar speaking about their experiences, conducting workshops and roundtables, performing their original spiritual music, showing their spiritual art, and being there to hear all about your spiritual experiences and wishes. All of this is geared towards helping you on your personal path to God. You can learn more about Eckankar by visiting: Eckankar's website http://www.eckankar.org/ Eckankar's video presentations https://www.youtube.com/user/EckankarOfficialSite

This presentation will help participants understand the root causes of sexual violence, its prevalence, its impact on survivors, and the dynamics that make sexual violence a stigmatizing crime. The presenter will discuss how perpetrators of sexual violence chose victims based on perceived or created vulnerability and lack of credibility. Oppressed communities are often perceived as more vulnerable, and have less perceived credibility than privileged classes of people and therefore are often targeted by perpetrators.

Critic and film historian Jonathan Rosenbaum has said IMAGINE THE SOUND “may be the best documentary on free jazz that we have.” IMAGINE THE SOUND is an eloquent tribute to a group of highly celebrated artists that helped forge the avant-garde jazz of the 1960s. Focusing on four important and celebrated figures (Cecil Taylor, Archie Shepp, Paul Bley and Bill Dixon) allowing them to reflect on their careers and those around them that, in many ways, defined the sound of '60s jazz. Plus, there's music. The music in this film is brilliant. https://www.facebook.com/events/1149810548383434/

Portland Women in Art Lecture Series presents Ellen Lesperance on, "The Strong, Star-Bright Companions." The lecture is to take place at the Moriarty Arts Humanities Building on the Portland Community College Cascade Campus. Ellen Lesperance’s work pays tribute to direct action campaigns and feminist activism. Lesperance's paintings are based on knit garments worn by women involved in protests, sit-ins, demonstrations, and civil disobedience. She meticulously paints the patterns of these “knitted messages,” that function much like other forms of creative direct action such as picket signs, banners, street theater, body painting, and costumes. Pattern, shape, and symmetry emerge in the artist's highly detailed compositions that merge abstraction with figuration. By translating and transforming such source material into something abstract and universal, the works speak to participation and protest as being not radical, but essential and personal. They also create a political lineage, capturing the potential of past events to inspire future action through translated and coded symbols. Ellen Lesperance’s work has been exhibited widely, most recently at the Seattle Art Museum, the Drawing Center, New York, and in the People's Biennial (traveling). Lesperance’s work is represented in the following public collections: the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum; the Museum of Art and Design; the Portland Art Museum; the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; and at the Kadist Art Foundation. Lesperance has been honored with the northwest regional Betty Bowen Award, a Ford Family Fellowship in the Arts, the 2015 Individual Artists RACC Fellowship, an Art Matters! Grant, a Robert Rauschenberg "Artist-as-Activist" Travel Grant, and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. She received her MFA from Rutgers University in 1999 and has received residencies at the Skowhegan School; the MacDowell Colony; the Djerassi Foundation; and the Atlantic Center. Her work has been featured in AnOther, Art in America, ArtUS, Art Monthly, Cura, GARAGE, Guernica, Intercourse, the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Oregonian, and Tema Celeste.

"Kwame Ture Talks about zionism being Africa's enemy." Kwame Ture, formally known as Stokely Carmichael, gives a talk on the zionist movement, the difference between zionism and Judaism, and the role zionism plays in destabilizing the African liberation movement and why. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information.

Author Margaret Guroff reads from her new book, The Mechanical Horse, about the wild and little-known ways in which the bicycle has impacted American culture. With cities across the country adding miles of bike lanes and building bike-share stations, bicycling is enjoying a new surge of popularity in America. It seems that every generation or two, Americans rediscover the freedom of movement, convenience, and relative affordability of the bicycle. The earliest two-wheeler, the draisine, arrived in Philadelphia in 1819 and astonished onlookers with the possibility of propelling themselves “like lightning.” Two centuries later, the bicycle is still the fastest way to cover ground on gridlocked city streets. Filled with lively stories, The Mechanical Horse reveals how the bicycle transformed American life. As bicycling caught on in the nineteenth century, many of the country’s rough, rutted roads were paved for the first time, laying a foundation for the interstate highway system. Cyclists were among the first to see the possibilities of self-directed, long-distance travel, and some of them (including a fellow named Henry Ford) went on to develop the automobile. Women shed their cumbersome Victorian dresses—as well as their restricted gender roles—so they could ride. And doctors recognized that aerobic exercise actually benefits the body, which helped to modernize medicine. Margaret Guroff demonstrates that the bicycle’s story is really the story of a more mobile America—one in which physical mobility has opened wider horizons of thought and new opportunities for people in all avenues of life.

"A Message from the Women of Gambia." Youth women organizers for the All African Women's Revolutionary Union and the All African People's Revolutionary Party speak about organizing for Pan-Africanism in Gambia and Africa. The All African People's Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is hosting its annual discussion events as a way of informing discussion about the worldwide struggle for Pan-Africanism, which we define as one unified socialist Africa. We believe Pan-Africanism is the key to the problems facing over 900 million Africans who are scattered and suffering in 113 countries. We also believe Pan-Africanism is our contribution to the worldwide movement for peace, justice, and scientific socialism. Also, don't forget that the A-APRP feeds children every Monday and Friday at Colombia International Cup Coffee Shop in N. Portland. Look for us to expand our work with other local organizations in New Columbia to help build an independent African school there. Contact us at www.aaaprporegon.org for more information.
