The Rockefeller Brothers Fund has allocated a grant of $10,000 to the NY nonprofit toward the creation of an interactive educational digital resource geared toward a general viewership. This project aims to bridge the divide separating dance from mainstream culture, underscoring the primacy, purpose, and possibility of dance in contemporary life. Combining the instructional with the performative, the resulting films aim to increase the public’s knowledge of dance and their dance literacy, to share the love of dance, and to introduce ways to view, speak about, and participate in dance with comfort. This project is deeply aligned with the Company’s core values, objectives, and outcomes for which its programming has gained acclaim. The goal is to distribute this digital resource widely and freely, contributing to the Open Educational Resources movement (OER), in which knowledge is shared without cost, providing access to all.

Ruth’s multimedia, solo show takes us into the story of one woman’s courageous and soul-searching journey of adventure, discovery, and ultimate forgiveness. The memoir, although intensely personal, is universal in its dramatic and historic appeal.

Born in 1956, playwright Ruth Bieber, second daughter of post World War II immigrant parents, begins life in rural Alberta. The farm life, her Father’s dream, holds devastating consequences for the six-week old infant, her Mother, and ultimately the family as a whole.

Challenging times require our engagement in difficult dialogues about topics many of us may prefer to avoid. The increasing elusiveness of ‘truth’ makes the responsibility of engagement a greater challenge. Nevertheless, open discussions are essential to the never-ending pursuit of freedom and justice for All. To facilitate our conversation about a difficult truth, The Very Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas will speak on the Ithaca College campus on Thursday, September 26th beginning at 7:00 pm in the Emerson Suites. Her presentation, “The Soul of the Nation at a Time of White Nationalism,” will be followed by a question and answer period. We invite you to attend and encourage you to reserve this date on your calendar.

Toni Cade Bambara asked this question 40 years ago in The Salt Eaters.  Right now, it is more relevant than ever for every / body.  However, how do we get well when we have not named the things that have wounded and continue to wound us?  What are the connections between being well and being free?  How can Black Studies be a path that helps us acknowledge the struggle of birth AND untether us from the struggles that (will) kill us?  Most importantly:  When or if we get free, how do we stay free?
