Shore Stories-Tallahassee @ All Saints Cinema
Feb 20 @ 7:00 pm
Shore Stories-Tallahassee @ All Saints Cinema | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

As the Trump administration announced plans to open nearly all U.S. waters to offshore drilling, people across the country are standing up. This plan opens the floodgates to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling, threatening coastal economies that rely on clean and healthy oceans. This radical offshore drilling free-for-all is a clear example of politics over people, ignoring widespread local and state opposition. Join us for Shore Stories, six short films that highlight the grassroots resistance taking place across the US, as well as stories from past oil and gas exploration – including the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. After the films we’ll discuss the proposal and how you can get involved in resisting these disastrous plans. Join us to stand together to protect the coast, and learn how we can keep up the fight to say NO to offshore drilling!

10th Annual FAMU Spring Literary Forum Series Department of “We Built This: Storytellers and Culture Bearers” @ Florida A&M University's Grand Ballroom
Feb 22 @ 8:30 am – 5:00 pm

Natasha Trethewey, former United States Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winner, is the 2018 Leo Sam Keynote Speaker for the 10th Annual Spring Literary Forum Series at Florida A&M University. She will speak at 6 p.m. on February 23, 2018.

“‘We Built This’: Storytellers and Culture Bearers” is our 2018 theme, and it was inspired by the “Juneteenth” episode of ABC’s Black-ish. Our guest speakers’ thought-provoking presentations on culture, history, literature, and traditions of the past will reveal traces of those legacies in the present as we continue “to document the humanity and experiences of Afro-Southern communities” and to celebrate their “contributions to an American identity.”

Our 2018 guest speakers include Natasha Trethewey, former United States Poet Laureate Yolanda Franklin, PhD (FAMU); Billy Close, PhD (FSU); Patrick Mason, PhD (FSU); Mayor Booker Gainor (Cairo, Georgia); and Sam X, artist and master gardener (Sylvester, Georgia). A special panel dedicated to an illuminating discussion on the significance of Black-ish’s “Juneteenth” episode will feature the following scholars: Kendra Mitchell, Ph.D.; Darius Young, Ph.D.; and Cocoa Williams.

Classical Revolution Presents Musical Mixology @ Waterworks
Feb 22 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Please note this event is reoccurring.  Please confirm there has been no interruption before planning to attend.

Last fall Classical Revolution—an organization that promotes the performance of western art (classical) music in progressive settings such as bars and cafés—established a new chapter in Tallahassee, Florida. Founded by Larkin Sanders (DM, clarinet performance), Cole Belt (DM, saxophone performance), and Ben Lougheed (DM, guitar performance), the events quickly grew into a regular, well-attended staple at Waterworks. Now, with Larkin, Cole, and Ben all back in town for the school year, the series will once again be performing concerts of classical music that are free and open to the public. Programs will feature works from all time periods, including ancient music with period instruments, baroque, classical, romantic, impressionist, modern, post-modern, and contemporary. Ensembles will range from traditional string quartets to contemporary percussion ensembles and non-traditional groups. Performers are graduate students and faculty from the College of Music at Florida State University. Waterworks and Classical Revolution plan to have performances scheduled the last Thursday of every month from 9:00 to 11:00 PM.
