A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon
Portland SE Uplift

At the most basic level, a home is a place that gives you shelter, protecting you from the weather and unsafe situations. It’s also where you live your life, eat your meals, and raise your family. If housing is a basic human right, why do so many people struggle to find or keep housing? How do we as individuals and as a society make decisions that undermine the idea that we all have a right to a home?

This is the focus of A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon, a free conversation with Cristina Palacios on Saturday, November 18th at 3 pm at SE Uplift 3534 SE Main St. Portland OR 97214. This program is hosted by SE Uplift Neighborhood Coalition and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Muz Afzal at muz@seuplift.org or call (503) 232-0010 Ext 319.

About the Facilitator:
Cristina Palacios was born in Tolimán, Jalisco, México, and started organizing at age fourteen. Most recently, Christina worked with Community Alliance of Tenants as a senior organizer. She is driven by a passion for housing and social justice and the belief that everyone—regardless, their income, disability, race or immigration status—deserves a safe and healthy place to call home.

Minoru Yasui: Historical Lessons to Be Remembered
Central Library, 801 SW 10th

The late civil rights leader Minoru Yasui deliberately protested the military curfew laws on Japanese Americans during World War II and was subsequently arrested, leading him to challenge the constitutionality of the order. In 2015, Minoru Yasui was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States.

Those were dark historic chapters when America rounded up thousands of its own citizens, stripped them of their freedoms and placed them into camps behind barbed wires. Come and hear Mr. Yasui's story and other untold stories of Japanese Americans and their plight during World War II, which is hauntingly relevant in the face of our government's current travel ban.

Presenter Peggy Nagae served as Minoru Yasui’s lead attorney in reopening his World War II case and securing a vacation of his original conviction in 1983-84. She is the inaugural recipient of the Minoru Yasui Justice Award by the University of Oregon School of Law.

Presenter George Nakata was a personal friend of Mr. Yasui, as a second generation Japanese American, who together with his family lost everything during the hysteria of World War II and spent those years incarcerated in an American concentration camp.

Q&A will be moderated by Multnomah County Circuit Court Presiding Judge Nan Waller.

Made possible by The National Endowment for the Humanities Fund of The Library Foundation and organizational support of Multnomah County Circuit Court. CLE credit pending for Oregon State Bar members.

Unmarked Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have been periodically targeting community members at the WA CO. Courthouse on Monday's between 8:00 - 10 AM for the last couple of months.

The 1920s KKK in Oregon and America's Right-Wing Tradition
Parsons Gallery, PSU Urban Center Bldg, 506 SW Mill, 2nd Floor

Portland State University Urban Center (URBN) Parsons Gallery RM 212

RSVP: http://bit.ly/KKK20sOR

A new Ku Klux Klan arose in the early 1920s, a less violent but equally poisonous descendant of the terrorist Klan begun in the 1870s South. This “second Klan” flourished above the Mason-Dixon Line by targeting Catholics, Jews and people of color as a threat to America’s destiny. Oregon and Portland in particular were Klan strongholds, and Oregon was the only state in which the Klan succeeded in outlawing Catholic schools (although courts overturned this legislation). The 1924 immigration control law enacted the Klan’s racial hierarchy by setting very low quotas on immigrants of “undesirable” ethnicities.

Klannish bigotry has deep roots in America, sometimes as an undercurrent, sometimes exploding publicly and angrily. Klan membership in the 1920s was not only respectable but even conferred prestige, offering an entrée into the “middle class” for many members. Understanding how it drew in millions of followers in the 1920s may offer some insight into today’s white nationalism.

Her most recent book is The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition (Liveright | W.W. Norton & Company, 2017).

Clinton Street Resistance presents The Last Waltz benefitting Friends of the Columbia Gorge
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

Martin Scorsese's documentary of the 1976 final performance of the legendary Sixties rock group The Band is at once a show featuring some of the greatest rock performers of their generation and a bittersweet look back at an era that was just beginning to fade. As Scorsese guides the group through interview segments discussing their 15 years together, these relatively young men sound like battle-weary survivors. But The Band were in splendid form for this show, and their multiple guest stars pulled out all the stops, especially Muddy Waters, whose "Mannish Boy" is so powerful it nearly burns a hole in the screen; Van Morrison, with a rousing performance of "Caravan;" and Bob Dylan, whose "Baby Let Me Follow You Down" displays the brilliant cockiness of his barnstorming days with this band.

The all-star camera crew and superb stereo sound mix create what is considered to be of the best-looking and sounding rock films ever (as the opening credit says, play this movie loud!), and two studio-shot sequences with Emmylou Harris and The Staple Singers stand on their own.

Tonight's nonprofit is Friends of the Columbia Gorge, the only non-profit organization dedicated entirely to ensuring that the beautiful and wild Columbia Gorge remains a place apart, an unspoiled treasure for generations to come.

OUT Film Series: The Times of Harvey Milk
Citizen, 3636 N Mississippi

The Media Institute for Social Change presents OUT: An LGBTQA+ Film Series.

Week Three: The Times of Harvey Milk (1984)

"This lucid, empathic 1984 documentary about the first openly gay elected official in California focusses on Harvey Milk as a grassroots politician who viewed gay rights as just one part of a democratizing movement in San Francisco government. He rose to a seat on the Board of Supervisors in 1977, after the city moved toward neighborhood rule; in chronicling his story, the filmmakers, Rob Epstein and Richard Schmeichen, choose an array of apt yet unpredictable eyewitnesses to his ascent." ––Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

Ticket page: http://www.mediamakingchange.org/the-times-of-harvey-milk-ticket-page

Series description: In the 1980s, the vibrant world of LGBTQA+ activism rose alongside films that brought queer lived experiences and histories to the public eye for the first time. Documentaries captured marginalized queer communities as they carved out spaces for themselves, from the ballrooms of Harlem to political offices in San Francisco. In these spaces, creativity and grit became sources of survival and resistance. This November, we explore documentary as a medium for subversion and antidote to mainstream erasure in the movement for LGBTQA+ rights.

The Media Institute for Social Change is a 501(c)3 non profit, educational organization. This series is intended for educational purposes only.

Keep the Oil in the Soil! Stop the Vancouver Oil Terminal!

Date, Time, and Place are subject to change. Vanpool available.

Governor Inslee will have 60 days to stop the largest crude oil terminal in North America, once a regulatory agency makes a recommendation.

That regulatory agency (EFSEC) will announce their recommendation IN PUBLIC, IN VANCOUVER. At that public meeting, we will show up in mass. We will either celebrate or protest their recommendation, and call on Governor Inslee to deny the Vancouver Oil Terminal.

We will get 1 week's notice of this public meeting, so we will change the information on this facebook event. Let’s not let the short notice keep us from showing up!

The proposed Vancouver oil terminal would handle a staggering 360,000 barrels of crude oil each day. That’s 42% of the capacity of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. The terminal would bring 5 more explosive oil trains per day through the Columbia River Gorge. Further, it would sharply increase the oil barge and ship traffic in the columbia river, risking oil spills that could kill large numbers of our already dwindling salmon population.

This summer, we got a taste of what climate change can bring. We cannot allow new fossil fuel infrastructure to be built. Show up to the last public meeting on the oil terminal, and tell Governor Inslee, he needs to deny this terminal now!

Equity Now! Volunteers of America Workers' Union
Volunteers of America Oregon, 3910 SE Stark

Kay Toran, Ph.D, the Executive Director of Volunteers of America Oregon, refuses to treat the VoA Workers's Union with dignity and respect. VoA workers earn low wages, and many of them are Women and POC. Dr. Toran is dividing workers by giving non-represented workers raises and cost of living allowances. Bargaining has been going on for almost a year due to Dr. Toran's union busting tactics. She has the power to make working conditions better, and will not do so.

Join us as we support workers before this bargaining session and show Dr. Toran's team that the community wants her to negotiate with workers in good faith!

Coffee and donuts will be provided! Bring your friends, kids, pets, and anyone else who is ready to fight for our community.

Marrow

"No-Thanks" giving (All ages, free)

Since 1970 the fourth Thursday of November ("Thanksgiving") has been recognized as the National Day of Mourning by indigenous peoples in MA, and since 1975 as Unthanksgiving Day by indigenous peoples in CA. Others refer to it as "Thankskilling" or "Thankstaking".

On top of its problematic and harmful colonialist roots, Thanksgiving can be a tough holiday for folks who find themselves away from friends and family.

We invite all folks of all backgrounds to come join us at Marrow for a night of eating, conversing, storytelling, games, art-making, and honoring the stolen land we operate on and the people it was taken from.

If you have requests for activities or would like to speak, please reach out and let us know!

If you can, please bring a dish or drink that's meaningful to you or that you enjoy! No pressure if you're not able though - all are welcome to come and eat. We do ask if you bring food that it be nut free and that you save and/or write down any ingredient info, so that folks with food sensitivities, restrictions, or allergies can make informed decisions about what to eat.

Brazil is this unique amalgamation of ideas straight out of Terry Gilliam's head that results in something so strange and so unique that it's just genius with a conclusion that is undeniably haunting. -- Chris Sawin, Examiner.com

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Books for Prisoners, a Seattle-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a love of reading behind bars, encourage the pursuit of knowledge and self-empowerment, and break the cycle of recidivism.

Celebrate Defeating Nestle and Meet Bark's New Director

What a breath of fresh air to have something to celebrate! Have you taken a moment to savor the victory of our concerted grassroots effort to stop one of the most powerful corporations in the world?

Join the Bark community on Tuesday, November 28th from 5-8pm for an evening of celebration, storytelling and community joyfulness!

That night at Cider Riot we will toast to the many volunteers who succeeded in protecting our public water from Nestle, and we will welcome in Bark’s new Executive Director Rob Sadowsky.

We’d love to see you. It’s a dark time for many, so come bask in some good ‘ol community power. Since we got the Nestle news, I have heard many people's stories of their part of the grand nine-year effort – whether it was through writing a comment, having a conversation with a friend, showing up at a protest, going on a hike to see Oxbow Spring for yourself, or donating to support the cause – it all added up and we WON.

It’s important to take time to share stories, look into each other’s eyes and realize that we truly hold the power of barkers –the ones who cry out time and again until things are right.

Event Details:

What: Celebration for defeating Nestle, welcoming Rob and toasting to our awesome community

When: Giving Tuesday, November 28th, 5-8pm

Where: Cider Riot, 807 NE Couch St

Food and drink: The cider bar is no-host and 10% of the night’s profit will go to Bark. The taco truck outside will be available for delicious Mexican food. Cider Riot and No Q'No! are great supporters of unions and community efforts so let’s support them, too!

Who: You, your kids (all ages), your friends.

What, reprise: an informal evening with games on the tables, Bark trivia, stories from the Nestle Campaign, Barker friends new and old, and the opportunity for making a year-end #GivingTuesday donation to Bark!

A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon
NE Coalition of Neighborhoods. 4815 NE 7th

At the most basic level, a home is a place that gives you shelter, protecting you from the weather and unsafe situations. It’s also where you live your life, eat your meals, and raise your family. If housing is a basic human right, why do so many people struggle to find or keep housing? How do we as individuals and as a society make decisions that undermine the idea that we all have a right to a home?

This is the focus of A Place to Call Home: Exploring Housing in Oregon, a free conversation with Cristina Palacios on Thursday, November 30th at 6:30 pm at Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, 4815 NE 7th Ave. Portland, OR 97211. This program is hosted by NECN and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact Laura Becker at laura@necoalition.org or 503.388.6088

About the Facilitator: Cristina Palacios was born in Tolimán, Jalisco, México, and started organizing at age fourteen. Most recently, Christina worked with Community Alliance of Tenants as a senior organizer. She is driven by a passion for housing and social justice and the belief that everyone—regardless, their income, disability, race or immigration status—deserves a safe and healthy place to call home.

Screening of The Story Of Skinhead By Don Letts (With DJs After)
through Cider Riot, 807 NE Couch

RASH NW and the Red and Black Subculture Club present: The Story Of Skinhead by Don Letts

Documentary in which director and DJ Don Letts looks at a very particular and very provocative British subculture - skinhead. He explores how skinhead has become associated with street fighting, trouble on thefootball terraces and violent racism in the public consciousness in Britain and around the world, but reveals that its origins lie in a cultural coming together that could not be further from its tarnished image.

Don shows in fascinating detail how the roots of skinhead are in a brilliant cultural collision between the young white working-class kids and their Jamaican counterparts in British inner cities, a moment of multicultural harmony. He traces the history of skinhead from the late 60s to the present, looking at the music and styles of skinhead from the reggae-influenced ska to the punk-influenced Oi. Throughout Don meets people who were committed members of various skinhead scenes, and he considers the conflicts and the contradictions that skinhead has attracted over five decades.

Afterwards DJ Dispissed and Soul Survivor will play the best of Boss Reggae, Two Tone, and Antifascist Oi!

Cloud of Petals
DISJECTA, 8371 N Interstate

Disjecta is proud to announce the second exhibition by Curator in Residence Julia Greenway. Sarah Meyohas’s Cloud of Petals presents new and previous work together that examines themes of beauty and labor in an automated society.

This multi-layered project began in 2016 at Eero Saarinen’s Bell Works in Holmdel, New Jersey, where the artist organized a crew of 16 men to pluck the petals off 10,000 roses. These performers selected and photographed each petal according to the artist’s stringent guidelines. The images were then uploaded to a cloud server, where they became “inputs for an artificial neural network”, an algorithm that builds, connects, and intertwines to create a system that is self-learning, rather than programmed. Upon entering the exhibition, the viewer is lead into Disjecta’s darkened and cavernous gallery space. Headsets are suspended from the ceiling, displaying the virtual environments created from Meyohas’s network of petals. Also on view is Meyohas’s 30-minute highly saturated 16mm film, documenting and contextualizing the scope of the artist’s unique process at Bell Labs. Through multiple digital platforms, Cloud of Petals uses clichés of the feminine to represent our vast and intangible system of digital networks along with the shifting levels of consciousness and identity that come with our use of them.

The show runs through January 13, 2018 and the gallery is open Friday–Sunday, 12–5pm and by appointment. Closed for Christmas and New Years. All exhibitions and events are free to attend and open to the public. A supportive exhibition of work by Tannaz Farsi, curated by Julia Greenway will be held in Seattle during the exhibition.

Seattle-based curator Julia Greenway is curating four exhibitions for the 2017-18 season at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center for the Curator in Residence Program. Greenway focuses her curation on the examination of digital media’s influence on the aesthetic presentation of gender, economics, and environment.

What Was He Thinking? Jan Balet: Watercolors & Lithographs
through ArtReach Gallery, First Congregational Churh of Christ, Portland, OR

ArtReach Gallery, Portland, to hold US debut exhibition by artist Jan Balet

Portland, OR – Lithographs and associated watercolor renderings by German-born artist Jan Balet (1913-2009) will be exhibited for the first time in the United States this fall. Curated by Dr. Sheldon Hurst, Portland-based art curator, the exhibition titled What Was He Thinking? Jan Balet: Watercolors & Lithographs will be presented at the ArtReach Gallery, First Congregational Church of Christ in Portland, Oregon from December 3, 2017 through January 14, 2018.

According to Peter Balet, Saratoga, New York resident and the artist’s only son, the concept for the exhibition evolved from a contact he received shortly after Jan Balet Art Preservation LLC launched its website (janbalet.com) in 2016.

“On the site, we invite individuals owning any of Jan’s works to contact us,” said Balet. “We were hoping to learn more about purchased works of my father’s. A gentleman from California found the website and sent us an email, telling us of his rather large collection of Jan’s lithographs.”

The Balet family had worked for several years following the artist’s death to learn more about the full breadth of his works. They teamed with Hurst, former art history professor and director of the Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury, NY, to document many of their findings. Hurst, now living in Oregon, volunteered to travel to California to view the lithograph collection and immediately began working on the idea of using the collection as the basis for an exhibition.

“Having worked with the Balet family researching Jan’s art, I knew that the artist learned the process of lithography so that he could make his own prints,” said Hurst. “I also knew that his body of work included a large number of miniature watercolors that he developed as part of his inspirational process for new, larger works. Juxtaposing the lithos with the watercolors that served as a basis for the final prints seemed a perfect pairing for a unique exhibition.”

At the conclusion of the run in Oregon, the exhibition will travel to the Burke Gallery at the Plattsburgh State Art Museum, Plattsburgh, NY, where it will be on display from February 12 through March 16, 2018.

Jan Balet Art Preservation LLC was established by the artist’s son and his wife, Marie, to expand interest in and enjoyment of the full breadth of Jan Balet’s art. Jan is mainly known in the U.S. for his commercial art from the mid-twentieth century, when he illustrated for the likes of CBS Television and popular magazines such as Vogue, Seventeen, Mademoiselle, and Saturday Evening Post. He later moved back to Europe, where he spent the rest of his life painting and producing prints of his works.

For more information concerning the exhibition, visit “News & Views” at www.janbalet.com or contact info@janbalet.com.

We Have Our Ways - special screening
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

In a dystopic but recognizable America, street riots are common, tap water is undrinkable, and you’re lucky if you get health insurance. Regina usually keeps her head down to just get by, especially at work. As a customer service rep for Alleviate (“Keeping you healthy tomorrow, today”), she must reject health coverage for desperate callers all day in order to do her job. But when her younger cousin Abigail is in need of a criminalized medical procedure, she must decide what price she’s willing to pay for justice.

The short film stars Sidony O'neal, Paige Moreland, Ana del Rocío and Peter Schuyler. Directed by Dawn Jones Redstone. Written by Kjerstin Johnson. Produced by Christian Henry.

On Sunday, December 3rd, we'll be screening the film at the Clinton St. Theater on from 2pm to 3pm. Doors open at 1:30pm.

The event is FREE, but registration is required through Brown Paper Tickets (https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3161997).

We will also be collecting donations at the screening, so please come with checkbooks, cash, or plastic ; )

Donations go toward professionally finishing the film, marketing, and festival submissions. There is a direct relationship between how much money we are able to raise to support We Have Our Ways, and how many people will get to see this film. And of course you are supporting local, independent filmmaking helmed by women (the film had an all-female crew as well).

Made possible by a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council. Thanks to Pro Photo Supply for their donation.

“This training has been so valuable for me and I will take these lessons with me for the rest of my career.”

People of any level of experience are welcome. The training will be highly interactive and will invite each of us to move through challenges and discomfort toward engagement, connection, and action.

As individuals, and an organization, that are continually striving to “walk our talk” around equity, Carlos and Teri invite you to join us for this training in the spirit of mutual exploration.

When a Racial Justice Lens is Not Enough
Jantzen Center, 411 NE 19th St

Funders, organizers, activists, and donors all have something at stake with the rise of White nationalism and white supremacy in Oregon. Social justice organizations are called to question our practices and how we unintentionally uphold or replicate systemic racism. MRG has begun the process of moving from a Racial Justice Lens to applying Critical Race Theory as our central framework to forward Racial Justice.

Discussion of applied CRT and practice using theory as a tool, to identify and disrupt white supremacy.

What’s the purpose? Bring people together and learn how others are addressing this issue, build some common language, share CRT as a tool, practice the application of the tool, and that every person can speak from their own role — activist, donor, funder, organizer, etc. — about how to disrupt white supremacy.

Who should come? Donors, supporters, philanthropic partner, grantees, organizers, activists, anyone interested in creating a better landscape for social justice funding, advocacy, and activism.

Please let us know if you need interpretation or other access services by emailing info@mrgfoundation.org

Creating the Democracy Movement to Abolish Corporate Personhood
First Unitarian Church, Eliot Chapel, SW 12th and Salmon, Portland OR

Join Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, Exec Director of Move to Amend, for an evening to find out how to end corporate personhood and control money in the political system.

The 2010 U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. FEC expanded spending on elections from corporations and wealthy individuals. Sopoci-Belknap will help local residents understand the more than century-long history behind that decision and how they can work to abolish "Corporate Personhood" and establish a government of, by, and for the people. The program will focus on how Portland can contribute to the growing national movement to affirm that only human beings have constitutional rights and that money can be regulated in elections and is not defined constitutionally as free speech. Sopoci-Belknap will report on and discuss actions that have taken place in hundreds of communities across the nation in support of the federal We the People Amendment, H.J.R. 48 as part of a larger movement of needed fundamental democratic changes.

Doors open at 6:30 PM

Admission: $5-20 donation requested; no one turned away for lack of funds

Every holiday season Portland Jobs with Justice comes together to celebrate our community, and to vote for the winner of the not-so-coveted annual Scrooge of the Year Award.

This award is voted on by the community (that’s you!) and is given each year to a boss, a politician, a corporation, or some other deserving institution that has been particularly nasty in the past year.

We here at Portland Jobs with Justice think it’s important that the voting process for this award is true to our American democratic system. That’s right – this election is for sale! You may purchase as many votes as you wish for as many different candidates as you wish to let your voice be heard in deciding the worst #badboss in town.

Admission tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Admission tickets come with 20 free votes. Additional votes can be bought online or at the party.

Click the following link to buy tickets and votes online: https://actionnetwork.org/ticketed_events/2017-scrooge-of-the-award-party?source=direct_link&

In alphabetical order, the nominees for JwJ’s 2017 Scrooge of the Year Award are:

1) AT&T Mobility, for stalling on contract bargaining and negotiating with workers in bad faith for over a year.

2) Freedom Foundation, for pushing anti-worker legislation, and for attacking and harassing local union members.

3) Kay Toran, CEO of Volunteers of America, for paying workers poverty wages while earning over $200k per year, and for refusing to come to the table and negotiate with the newly formed workers’ union.

4) Mondelez-Nabisco, for outsourcing factory jobs to countries with more lenient labor laws where they can avoid union labor and increasingly exploit workers around the world for greater profits.

5) Senator Rod Monroe, for being a landlord Democrat who took landlord lobby money and then effectively killed all renters’ rights legislation during the 2017 Oregon state legislative session.

6) Tom Mears, Chairman of Burgerville Parent Company, The Holland Inc., for being the master of Burgerville’s year and half long anti-union campaign and retaliation against workers for organizing.

Keaton Otis Vigil
NE 6th & Halsey

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over six years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for "looking like a gangster". They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.

Keaton's father Fred Bryant held a monthly vigil on the 12 of every month since his son's murder on the spot where Keaton's life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013.

His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community.

Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word.

The Conscience of Hollywood: The Rise of Protest Cinema, 1932-37 - Date not firm, see FB for correct info.
Cinema 21

Course postponed - Date is not firm

ORIGINAL TEXT -

Oregon State University Film Studies Program presents
THE CONSCIENCE OF HOLLYWOOD: THE RISE OF SOCIAL PROTEST CINEMA, 1932-1937
Six-Week Course at Cinema 21, October 28 - December 16, 2017.

Film course offers a survey of six classic films that encompass social protest cinema in the 1930s. Saturdays at 11 am, October 28 - December 16 (No classes Nov. 11, Nov. 25). $79.95

This six-week survey of socially conscious cinema is taught by renowned film programmer and scholar, Elliot Lavine. In 2010, he received the Marlon Riggs Award from the San Francisco Film Critics Circle for his revival of rare archival titles and his role in the renewed popularity of film noir. He has taught film studies courses for Stanford's Continuing Studies Program since 2006.

The course explores how the issues of poverty, political corruption, xenophobia and workers’ rights are depicted in the cinema of 1930s Hollywood and how it reflected the culture at large. In many ways, America in the 21st century bears a remarkable resemblance to the America of the 1930s: a polarized political climate rife with economic disparity, homelessness, a legal system riddled with corruption, ethnic targeting and immigration worries–all topics that resonate with an eerie similarity to the travails of today's uncertain world.

Hollywood in the 30s, in all its uncanny and prescient wisdom, was quick to respond to the social injustices it perceived with a stream of hard-hitting and uncompromising entertainments designed to ignite the passions and fuel the hopes of beleaguered movie-goers across the country. In this course, students will be presented with a vivid portrait of American political and social history as reflected by contemporary cinema of the day. Of equal importance, students will be exposed to a brilliant array of cinematic art which will hopefully broaden their appreciation for film from this classic period.

The six titles feature works from such notable directors as William Wellman and Melvyn LeRoy as well as stars like Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis. Titles include

  • I am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932),
  • Heroes for Sale (1933),
  • Wild Boys of the Road (1933),
  • They Won’t Forget (1937),
  • Black Legion (1927) and
  • Marked Woman (1937).
