Anne Gardiner Perkins: Yale Needs Women
In partnership with the Pratt Library’s Writers LIVE Series, The Church of the Redeemer hosts Anne Perkins discussing her new book, Yale Needs Women. The news was so shocking that the New York Times ran it on the front page. Yale, which had banned women undergraduates for the previous 268 years, was finally going coed. Yale Needs Women tells for the first time the true story of the young women students who broke the gender barrier at Yale in September 1969. They came from all over the country: Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Boston, the Bronx.

The Investigation, Prosecution, and Resignation of Vice-President Spiro Agnew: A Talk by Tim Baker, one of the prosecutors
On October 10, 1973, in the midst of Watergate, Spiro Agnew resigned and pled to a tax felony based on over $250,000 in bribes and kickbacks he had received as County Executive, Governor, and Vice President. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Barney Skolnik, Tim Baker, and Ron Liebman developed and prosecuted the case under George Beall, the U.S. Attorney for Maryland. Tim Baker’s talk will detail how the investigation began and progressed and how Elliot Richardson, the U.S. Attorney General, conducted the plea bargaining which achieved his overriding objective: the corrupt Vice-President’s removal from his position a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

Lawrence Lanahan: The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore’s Racial Divide
A masterful narrative-with echoes of Evicted and The Color of Law-that brings to life the structures, policies, and beliefs that divide us. This eye-opening account of how a city creates its black, white, rich, and poor spaces suggests these problems are not intractable, but they are destined to persist until each of us-despite living in separate worlds-understands we have something at stake. Lawrence Lanahan has written for Al-Jazeera America, Columbia Journalism Review, NPR’s Morning Edition, and Colorlines, among other outlets. A recipient of the Carey Institute’s Logan Nonfiction Fellowship, Lanahan’s The Lines Between Us, a fifty-episode radio series for Baltimore’s WYPR, won Columbia University’s duPont Award. He lives in Baltimore. Click here for more details.

King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most-subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat-and how we farm. Written and directed by Aaron Woolf www.kingcorn.net.

 

Big River presents the “next step”: where do the chemicals go that farmers use to grow all that corn? Our plan for the evening is to screen both short films, and then have a discussion with the director and writer, Aaron Woolf.

Mark Bowden is the author of thirteen books, including the New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down. He will be in conversation with Dan Fesperman, an award winning author and former foreign correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. His latest novel is Safe Houses. For forty years the mystery of what happened to the Lyons sisters, aged 10 and 12, who disappeared in 1975 from the Wheaton Plaza shopping mall in suburban Washington, D.C, haunted an entire community, including journalist Mark Bowden, who covered the story as a cub reporter. With The Last Stone, he now returns to the crime to cover the extraordinary effort by authorities to bring their kidnapper to justice and to try to answer the question he could never shake, “Who would commit such a crime? And, why?” Click here for more details.
