APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition Now Playing @ Challenger Learning Center
Nov 15 – Dec 16 all-day

Experience the “out-of-this-world” moment (literally) when the United States of America achieved exploration greatness with APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition. Boasting “how far and how fast we have come,” as a nation, during a time where traveling to the moon was unthinkable, the brilliantly curated film pilots the audience through the lunar landing journey of avid preparation, anxious lift off and triumphant return. APOLLO 11 was made specifically for a giant screen at museums and science centers, offering an exclusive take into “the greatest and most complex exploration in Man’s history.”
Featuring a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70 mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, the film offers a distinctive feature from the documentary genre, without narration. Here, the alluring nature of IMAX and unclassified audio recordings speak for themselves, even in its moments of restless silence. APOLLO 11 showcases the raw reality of humanity’s greatest achievements as the first to put men on the moon.
The 47 minute IMAX experience, APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition, excites family and friends of all ages to experience an American triumph at an affordable price. Offering tickets between $6-8, purchases support the Challenger Learning Center’s community outreach and educational programming. APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition is sponsored locally in part through the Council on Culture and Arts’ Cultural Grant Program, funded by the City of Tallahassee and Leon County.

Walls Turned Sideways are Bridges: Narratives of Necessity @ FAMU Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery
Dec 2 all-day

The Florida A&M University Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery is pleased to present Walls Turned Sideways are Bridges: Narratives of Necessity from August 26 – December 6, 2019. The opening reception will be held in The Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery on Thursday, September 5.

Walls Turned Sideways are Bridges: Narratives of Necessity is collaborative exhibition co-curated by award-winning artist, William Cordova, and curator, Marie Vickles. The exhibition focuses on the evolution of youth radical community activist movements that became prominent in the late 1960s and early 1970s, through organizations like the Black Panther Party, The Young Lords Party, the Brown Berets, Tupamaros, Red Guard, Grey Panthers, Florida BAMM (Black Afro Militant Movement, American Indian Movement, and many more. Many of these groups exemplify the vanguard for social change in the United States. A phenomenon that would eventually have a national and global impact, yet today most of what is known about the Black Panthers, Young Lords, and other activist organizations is erroneous or misleading.

The exhibition contains mainstream and underground newspapers, magazines and other alternative news from 1965-1982, historical articles from mainstream media sources, such as Time Magazine, Newsweek, Jet, Ebony, New York Times Magazine, and photography by Ducho Dennis, Ilka Hartmann, Bev Grant, Steven Shames, Michael Abramson. Short films, videos, and audio will also be presented as part of the exhibit; Eldridge Speaks (LP), Let Rap, Rap by Rap Brown (LP), Lords of the Revolution (40 Min film) Palante Siempre Palante (50 min) Huey (10 min).
