Read a great review of this important book by Margaret A. Burnham (M&A '61): www.nytimes.com/2022/09/21/books/review/by-hands-now-known-margaret-burnham.html
"'By Hands Now Known,' by Margaret A. Burnham, examines the chronic, quotidian violence faced by Black citizens in the American South — and the law’s failure to address it. More than a decade ago, Burnham, a law professor, founded the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project at Northeastern University, and with the help of the political scientist Melissa Nobles created a database of what Burnham calls a 'forgotten history of racially motivated homicides' in the American South during the Jim Crow era.'"

So glad that La Guardia is honoring one of its great all-time teachers, who literally handed the baton to so many to start their career.

Can’t wait to attend and honor our beloved teacher!

Can it be streamed for distant alumni?

Many people from my year!

Looking forward to this!!!

We are pleased to offer 150 FREE movie tickets to our community for the new Disney film "Mija" on August 2 at 7pm at Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater, thanks to Film at Lincoln Center!
RSVP for free tickets here: rsvp.theworldsbest.events/_vde0g

"Doris Muñoz and Jacks Haupt are two daughters of undocumented immigrants from Mexico who are both navigating their careers in the music industry. Seeking to provide for their families while achieving their dreams, Doris and Jacks bond over the ever-present guilt of being the first American-born members of their undocumented families and the financial risks of pursuing their dreams. For them, the pressure of success is heightened because it is their family’s hope for green cards and family reunification.
Mija is a moving love letter to immigrants and their children. Director Isabel Castro’s intimate debut feature constructs an ethereal vision and dedication to the daughters that fight for their families, their dreams and themselves." www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm4tK4wwXp8

Salane says: "I acquired 6,400 coins from a New York Metropolitan Transit Authority asset recovery auction. The lot I acquired was listed as ‘slugs’ and contained a variety of tokens that mimic the shape and weight of legal tender. Each of these were used by commuters to pay for bus fares from 2017 to 2019. Five distinct categories of slug coins kept appearing across the contents I acquired. Chance: arcade and casino tokens. Faith: religious keepsakes and prayer tokens. Blank: batteries, washers and hardware. Imitation: plastic play money and counterfeit coins. Place: destinations, commemorations and tokens for access. I am interested in how this set reflects a sample of the beliefs, experiences and movements pertaining to masses of people who exist in a city.”

My thoughts are ..” something for nothing” (slugs) which probably cost them more than the fare would have been.... And thinking they’re putting one over on the govt ..the “ man”. However, in one way or another , you always pay at the end of the day

Being in the senior chorus at M&A was the most transcendent experience of my life. Verdi’s requiem.

How awesome!

I adored singing with LaGuardia’s gospel chorus‼️What a fantastic school and a true gift‼️🎶🎤🤩

What a great opportunity for those students! I loved Senior Chorus when I was at M&A all those years ago. Have enjoyed very much working with Eric Whitacre also on VC6 and soon to collaborate with Choir of the Earth summer school.

Gorgeous sound!

courttree.com/Familiar
"Court Tree Collective proudly presents Familiar, a group exhibition featuring work of two families of artists: the Rush and the Yoda families. The Rush family’s artistic story spans three generations: grandmother, son, and grandson. The Yoda family are Japanese immigrants that have artistic roots dating back to 1921. Familiar is a true a story about two families of artists.
To be familiar, is to be known. The bond of family lives and expands beyond earthly matters. Mirroring one another—the Rush family, and the Yoda family are rooted by their innate artistic abilities. Passed along from generation to generation, their diverse ancestral backgrounds and upbringings create a prolific conversation. The versatile masterings of material and technique run deep within these paralleled families."
